  • Multimedia
    • What is Multimedia?
      • Digital media presented in an interactive manner
    • Multimedia Objects (Media forms)
      • Text (one page = 500-1,000 Bytes)
      • Graphics (one pic = 300KB - 1MB)
      • Audio (one min. = 2.5MB)
      • Animation (size varies)
      • Video (one min. = 10MB)
    • Human faculties
      • sight
      • sound
      • touch
      • smell
      • taste
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Digital Text
    • Printed text
      • e.g books, newspaper
    • Scanned text
      • image
      • OCR software needed to convert to machine readable
    • Electronic text
      • machine readable form
      • can be electronically transmitted or edited
    • Hypertext
      • text that has been linked
      • used widely in Internet
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Digital Images
    • Pixel: Picture Element
    • Screen: 1280 by 1024 pixel
    • dpi are used for output devices
    • rectangular array of pixels: bitmap (or raster)
    • images can be represented in bitmap or vector graphics
    • Vector graphics: scalable, size & shape can be changed
    • Raster requires recalculation and redrawing when changes are made
    • Most Multimedia graphics are raster (faster to display)
    • Font technology makes use of vector graphics
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Image and pixels David Asirvatham LESSON 4 - Enlarged Image Original Image
  • Digital Colour Images
    • Black & White, Grayscale and Colour images
    • Human eye can distinguish between 0.5 - 2 million colours
    • Video/image display: 2 1 (2 colour) to 2 24 (16.7 million)
    • 4-bit and 8-bit colour: indexed colour
    • 16-bit and 24-bit colour: true colour image
    • Common Graphics format
      • .bmp bitmap; Most efficient format for windows
      • .gif graphics interchange format; Used in Internet
      • .pcd Kodak’s photo CD
      • .mac Macintosh MacPaint
      • .jpg Joint Photographic Experts Group; platform-independent
      • .tif Tagged Image File; have many different subformat
      • Others: .pic (PC Paint); .pcx (Zsoft Paintbrush); .wpg (WordPerfect)
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Raster vs Vector
    • Raster or Bitmap Images
      • image is created as a set of points
      • each point can display 2 to millions of colour
        • 1 bit = 2 colour
        • 4 bit = 16 colour
        • 1 B = 256 colour
        • 2 B = 65,536 colour
        • 3 B = 16.7 million colours
      • std VGA display is 640 x 480 pixels = 307,200 pixels
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Raster vs Vector
    • Vector Images
      • based on drawing elements or objects such as lines, rectangle, circles, etc
      • e.g. Line: x1,y1,x2,y2,colour
      • e.g Circle: x1,y1,radius, fill_colour, line_colour
      • can be resized/scaled
      • limited level of details that can be represented
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -

    • Flexibility
      • can be used as reference tool or as the main tool; small or large groups
    • Reduce training time
      • studies have indicated a reduction of 30% (less time in training & organising)
    • Others: motivation, adaptability to learner, improves retention level
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Drawback of Multimedia Training
    • commitment
    • different delivery methodology is needed

        • Quality is the same as original
      • Lossy
        • The quality differ from the original
      • Intraframe
        • Each frame is compressed individually and stored
      • Interframe
        • Only changes are stored
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Examples of Firewire Interface
    • Firewire is Apple's version of the IEEE-1394 interface specification.  It is also known as Sony's i.LINK,®.  Whether referred to as FireWire, IEEE-1394 or iLINK the interface is the only high-speed digital technology that enables consumer electronics to easily interface with computer products
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 - Firewire
  • Compression
    • Advantages of compression
      • reduce file size
      • reduce cost of storage, transmission & processing
    • Sampling theory
      • sampling rate (e.g audio: 44.1 KHz)
      • Nyquist Theorem: one must sample twice as fast as the highest frequency being sampled
    • Techniques of Compression
      • Lossy (changes the original data on decompression)
        • changes are indistinguishable to human eye (JPEG, MPEG)
        • ratio can be as high as several hundred is to one
      • Lossless (original data is not changed on decompression)
        • pkzip, best ratio is 2:1
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Lossy
    • Lossy compression compresses a file so that when it's later decompressed, it appears to be the same. But it isn't.
    • some brilliant algorithms delete some data from the file in such a way that when the file is later reconstructed, you don't notice the deletions
    • JPEG is lossy while TIFF is lossless
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 - Original Picture Uncompressed 29MB High Quality 73KB Low Quality 25KB
  • Image Format (All 24 bit) David Asirvatham LESSON 4 - Bitmap 538KB GIF 84KB JPEG 38KB TIFF 509KB
  • Image JPEG format David Asirvatham LESSON 4 - 100% 92KB 80% 32KB 60% 16KB 40% 11KB
  • Major Compression Std.
    • JPEG (Joint Photograhic Experts Group)
      • Compression Standard for continuous-tone still image
      • 24-bit colour or gray-scale
      • Primarily for still image (can also be used for video)
      • lossy (image obtained out of decompression isn’t identical)
      • useful for human but not for machine-analysis
      • degree of lossiness can be varied by parameter (good for trade off of file size)
    • MPEG ( Moving Picture Expert Group)
      • colour video and audio compression
      • JPEG compress data within a frame while MPEG can exploit the similarity of adjacent frames
      • constant bit rate (suitable for streaming or transmission)
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Major Compression Std.
    • Graphics Interchange Format (GIF)
      • developed by Compuserver
      • used widely in the web
      • uses LZW compression algorithm (by Unisys)
      • limited to 256 colours
    • Tagged Image File Format (TIFF)
      • very high compression capability
      • good for black & white image
      • used in publishing and fax
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
  • Video Compression
    • MPEG
      • digital video standard
      • delta-frame encoding (only changes from frame to frame will be recorded)
      • CD, cable TV, satellite broadcast, HDTV, etc
    • MPEG 1
      • non-interlaced (draws every line) for playback from CD-ROMs
    • MPEG 2
      • interlaced version (draws every other line)
      • broadcast quality
      • used by US Grand Alliance HDTV, European Digital Video Broadcast Group, RCA (Direct TV), etc
    • MPEG 3
      • suppose to be HDTV standard but MPEG 2 could fulfill the needs (e.g. scaling the bit rate)
    David Asirvatham LESSON 4 -
