Multimedia Technology Part 1
In this course, we will study the basics of the multimedia system and of the different elements of the multimedia system. The theories of Authoring systems, its tools and development areas have also been discussed in this course. This course also considers the concept of Video
Conferencing and the protocols in Multimedia such as the real time transfer protocol, session control protocol etc. It goes beyond the traditional access network processes to discuss technological developments such as Cable Television, Digital Subscriber lines, digital television etc.
The overall aims of this course are to introduce you to the history and components of the Multimedia Technology. The fundamentals of Digital audio, video, images and colours are equally discussed.
There are five modules in this course; each module consists of at least 4 units of
topics that you are expected to complete in 2 hours. The five modules and their units are listed below.
What You will Learn in this Course
The overall aims and objectives of this course are to provide guidance on what you should be achieving in the course of your studies. Each unit also has its own unit objectives which state specifically what you should achieve in the corresponding unit. To evaluate your progress continuously, you are expected to refer to the overall course aims and objectives as well as the corresponding unit objectives upon the completion of each.
- The overall aims and objectives of this course will help you to:
- Develop your knowledge and understanding of the underlying concepts and theories of the Multimedia System.
