    • The World Wide Web (WWW) is the best example of hypermedia applications.
    • Multimedia systems must be computer controlled .
    • The information they handle must be represented digitally .
    • The interface to the final presentation of media is usually interactive .
    • Supporting multimedia applications over a computer network renders the application distributed or applications executed in mobile devices .
    • Data has to represented digitally so many initial source of data needs to be digitise -- translated from analog source to digital representation.
    • The data is large several Mb easily for audio and video -- therefore storage, transfer (bandwidth) and processing overheads are high.

    • Also the main trends are multimedia web applications
    • We need to know compression mechanism to multimedia items
    • We need to know web programming language to insert multimedia items and create our first simple multimedia application.
