  4. 4. <ul><li>Analog : all input data is converted into another physical objects </li></ul><ul><li>Digital : all input data are converted into numbers </li></ul><ul><li>Digitization : The process in which media is made into computer-readable form (Pavlik,2004) </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The benefits of digitization: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Data can be compressed into very small spaces </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data can be accessed at very high speeds and in non-linear ways </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data can be manipulated far more easily than analogue forms </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Digitization creates the conditions for : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Inputting very high quantities of data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Very fast access to that data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Very high rates of changes of that data </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>A dialog that occurs between a human and a computer program </li></ul><ul><li>The audience has some measure of control over what media content they see and in what order they see it ( personalized information , clicking ) </li></ul>
