Multimedia is a combination of Text, Audio, Still Image, Animation and Video Interactivity. Multimedia applications were, until the mid-90s, uncommon due to the expensive hardware required. With increases in performance and decreases in price, however, multimedia is now common. Now all PCs are capable of displaying video, though the resolution available depends on the power of the computer’s video adapter and CPU. Multimedia finds its application in various areas including advertisements, art, education, entertainment, engineering, medicine, mathematics, business, scientific research and Web media.
An individual multimedia designer needs skills range from technical, analytical, to creative. Then they can cover the spectrum throughout their career. Exciting presentations are used to grab and keep attention in advertising. Industrial, business to business and interoffice communications are often developed in advanced multimedia presentations.
Multimedia is heavily used in the entertainment industry, especially to develop special effects in movies and animations. Multimedia games are a popular pastime and are software programs available either as CD-ROMs or online. Some video games also use multimedia features. Multimedia applications that allow users to actively participate instead of just sitting by as passive recipients of information are called Interactive Multimedia.
In the Arts there are multimedia artists, whose minds are able to blend technique using different media that in some way incorporates interaction with the viewer. In Education, multimedia is used to produce computer-based training courses and reference books like encyclopedia. Edutainment is an informal term used to describe combining education with entertainment, especially multimedia entertainment. Software engineers may use multimedia in Computer Simulations for anything from entertainment to training such as military or industrial training. Multimedia for software interfaces are often done as collaboration between creative professionals and software engineers.
In the Industrial sector, multimedia is used as a way to present information to shareholders, superiors and coworkers. Multimedia is also helpful for providing employee training, advertising and selling products all over the world via virtually unlimited web-based technologies.
In Mathematical and Scientific Research, multimedia are mainly used for modeling and simulation. In Medicine, doctors can get trained by looking at a virtual surgery and more. In Web technology, now a day, in your web presentation there is too much of the user’s attention is required on the content of the pages.
When thinking about such Web pages we use images, animations, video or sound. In Multimedia Technology Animation, Video Editing and Sound Editing are the three main categories. Multimedia offers opportunity with high salaried jobs for talented Animator, Video Editors, Sound Engineers and other technical specialists. This industry is in need of skilled and trained work force world widely.
Animation is a simulation of movement created by displaying a series of pictures or frames. The animator can make a unique character and decide how the character will look, move and interact with its environment. Bone animation, Cell animation, Character animation, Clay animation, Computer animation, Stop motion animation, Tweening are the techniques used in animation.
Video editing is the process of manipulating and rearranging video shots to create a new work. Editing is usually considered to be one part of the post production process. Rearranging, adding or removing sections of video clips or audio clips. Applying colour correction, filters and other enhancements and creating transitions between clips.
Sound Editing :
Sound Editing is an art of combining and processing a number of audio signals together to create a mix that the audience can hear. A trend in large scale theatrical production is to minimize or eliminate the amount of sound equipments. Sound engineering deals with the step up and operation of a sound reinforcement system. It offers the production and recording of sound in its many forms and reflects the increasing convergence of new technologies from the traditional media of film and television to a streaming technology.
This technology has a wide range of opportunity like Studio Sound Engineer, Live Sound Engineer, Musician, Music Producer, Radio technician, Film Television Sound Recordist, Field Sound Engineer, Audio Editor, Post-Production Audio Creator.
