The Demise of Multimedia
July/August 1991 (vol. 11 no. 4)
pp. 75-80

The author uses the term interactive electronic presentation (IEP) to describe a collusion of sounds and images elicited from a piece of electromechanical machinery by the user's persistent activity and urges that it replace multimedia. The differences between the creation and delivery of IEPs is discussed, and it is argued that they require different engines. The characteristics required of each class of engine are discussed, and it is argued that the future of IEPs can best be served by developing special-purpose delivery engines rather than general-purpose computers.
