IPT: S&R Multimedia, part 2

posted May 11, 2009, 2:07 PM by Eddie Woo
The textbook(s) address the storing and retrieving of multimedia referring to one kind of storage only: portable. That makes sense, because historically, numerous types of portable storage devices have been associated (sometimes exclusively) with multimedia. But today, a major proportion of storing and retrieving multimedia occurs in a network context. In a classwork post:
  1. List some of the services that provide the facility for online multimedia storing and retrieving.
  2. Account for the massive success of such services.
  3. Select three sites that offer hosting for either video or images and contrast these three sites.
  4. Describe the unique benefits that result from using this kind of storage for multimedia.
Watch out for the HSC keywords!
