Summary A unique reference for all those using the new electronic 'multimedia' arts, The Cyberspace Lexicon provides a much-needed guide through the maze of existing and emerging technologies. From arcade games to artificial intelligence, data superhighways to DTP, video graphics to virtual reality, this book explains all the essential concepts and technical terms. Arranged alphabetically, The Cyberspace Lexicon offers a variety of levels of information and access. Technologies are defined; innovatory organizations are profiled; key concepts are explained and 'buzzwords' clarified. Over 800 clear, concise dictionary entries, designed for quick reference, are complemented by illustrated features covering important issues. A comprehensive bibliography is also provided. The latest software and hardware is illustrated by hundreds of colour photographs, many of them appearing in printed form for the first time.
This is the first book to offer a comprehensive and 'random access' approach to the new media. Both a cross-disciplinary glossary and an illustrated introduction to the subject, it is an invaluable resource for media professionals, students, and all those affected by the new digital technologies.
