Description - Perspectives on Multimedia by Robert Burnett

Perspectives on Multimedia: Communication, Media and Information Technology can be seen as a unique contribution in the field of media and information science due to the lack of advanced or specialised titles of frontline research on multimedia frameworks and issues. This book provides a broad range of perspectives on what we perceive as key issues for interactive multimedia in organisations and industry today. It focuses on four key aspects of multimedia: capture; recognition; translation; and integration and is divided into three main subject areas: media and communication, information systems, and computer science. The discussion within this book comes from a technical and theoretical basis, considers educational and information applications and also deals with the research approach. Its advanced level makes it ideal for specialists working in media and communication, information systems, and computer science along with practitioners involved in multimedia development, consultants advising organisations on digital solutions and information technology matters and students or researchers focusing on business and technical aspects of multimedia frameworks.
