Multimedia Systems: An Introduction

In this program, two interactive software developers describe multimedia hardware and software, and how multimedia content—text, audio, and video—is created and supported. Tin Man Games programmer Ben Britten discusses Apple’s Xcode suite of tools used to make iPhone applications, and he gives an overview of the software that plans, captures, edits, and displays multimedia, including codec programs that process and store files. The video also examines content sharing, virality, and the social and ethical implications of multimedia technology. A viewable/printable worksheet is available online. (20 minutes)
