Digital media is propelling from the domain of the PC to consumer electronics as a result of advances in silicon fabrication. Digital media can be anything from content on a CD or a set-top box to the bits streaming through the ether or over fiber. From the author's point of view, and major area of interest, digital media starts with the hardware bits and pieces needed to get all of the elements together in one place at one time for human consumption. From a processor cycles point of view, both human and machine, digital media is mostly about images, and images are formed from computer graphics and/or video.
