Description: Multimedia, which may be defined as interactive digital media, is a synthesis of traditional forms of art and communication with the rapidly-evolving fields of computing and networking. A variety of technical and social/cultural disciplines are involved: audio, graphic, hardware, human factors, networking, software, telecommunications, and video. A large and often incomprehensible vocabulary has resulted from the convergence of these diverse disciplines.

Comprehensive, concise and clearly written, The Dictionary of Multimedia presents and defines the "language" that has resulted from this convergence -- from A: B: C notation to z-sorting. Industry-standard acronyms are also spelled out and defined. Extended definitions of important concepts such as MIDI Fire Wire, and MPEG are included.

Features of the new Second Edition include: more than 4,000 terms (50% more than in the 1998 edition); additional illustrations and graphic examples; in-depth treatment of Internet technologies: XML, HTML 4.0, JavaScript; new standards: MPEG-2 and other video codecs, DVD, VRML, Dolby Audio; new bus architectures and operating systems; updated treatment of the latest hardware; JAVA programming references; etc.
