factfile1.1 What is Digital Media?


Multimedia refers to any electronic material that contains a combination of different types of digital content – such as text, audio, photographs, artwork, animation and video.

Because this media is stored digitally as electronic files either on computer hard drives, DVDs, or solid state memory cards, it is known as digital media.

Digital media is not restricted to televisions, desktop computers and laptops; it can also be viewed on personal, portable, devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Many venues use large LED or plasma screens, or data projectors to display the multimedia in public spaces such as railway stations and shopping centres.
