Answer: There are many definitions of multimedia and as more and varied forms of technology are created, the definition changes. Some of us can remember when multimedia meant using a slide-tape program, where a beep signified the display of the next 35mm slide or even presentations that utilized flannel boards or 8-track tapes! Things have certainly advanced, haven’t they? Broadly speaking, multimedia is the integration of text, graphics, animation, sound, and/or video to form one complete experience. An example of multimedia might be a web page on the topic of The Beatles that has text regarding the iconic group along with an audio file of some of their music. It might even include a video of TV clips of their performances or interviews. Even further, today a multimedia experience may be watching a television program while interfacing with other watchers through social media and viewing the show’s outtakes or special features. It is no wonder why multimedia has become a huge force in American culture, industry and education. Practically, every aspect of how we receive information is delivered in a multimedia format today and is a huge force in both informing the American public and entertaining us. As the technology continues to progress, there will doubtless be many more things we will implement in our multimedia experience.
