    Combining audio and video with text, image, graphics and animation offers a more dynamic presentation than can be achieved through the use of text and image alone. This integration of media provides the possibility for a spectrum of new applications. Multimedia: Computing, Communications and Applications examines the challenges of this technology and probes today's developments toward fully integrated working systems.
