Digital Media

The World of Digital Media:

Digital Media refers to electronic media that works on digital codes. Today computing is primarily based on binary numerical system. In this digital refers to the discrete state of “0” and “1” for representing arbitrary data.

Digital Media is what computer use to store, transmit, receive and manipulate data. Raw data are character number images, sound, element that when put together, and arranged to form a meaningful information.

Digital Media like distributed via digital audio, digital video and other digital “content” can be created, referred to, and distributed via digital information processing machine.

Now, we will see some definitions regarding digital media.

Florid’s digital media industry defines digital media as science, technology and business for human expression, communication, social interaction and education.

Digital Media is what is made or produced electronically and stored in file.

Digital media is a more technique using a number system called Binary.

Historical background of Digital Media:                

The history of digital media starts with the development of the number 0 by the Babylonians about 2000 BC. Early use of something like zero by the Indian Scholar Pingala, implied at first glance by his use of binary numbers, is only the technology binary representation using 0 and 1 applied to Pingala’s binary system, which used short and long syllables [the latter equal in length to two short syllable.

Flansis Bacon researched the first binary alphabetic character. The intended use was to establish secret communication.

For example cities under siege and armies abroad.

Leibniz was the first mathematician to develop calculation in the binary system.

Care Friedisice Guass first electrifies binary information in his telegraphy experiments. He replaced “1” with “+” and “0” with “-“and translate binary information in to electric current.
