We are witnessing an explosive growth in use of multiple media forms (voice, data, images and video etc.) in varied application areas including entertainment, communication, collaborative work, electronic commerce and university courses. The increasing computing power, integrated with multimedia and telecommunication technologies, is bringing into reality our dream of real time, virtually face-to-face interaction with collaborators sitting far away from us. In the process of realizing our technological ambitions, we need to address a number of technology, management and design issues. We need to be familiar with exciting current applications. It is impossible to track the magnitude and breadth of changes that the multimedia and communication technology is bringing daily to us in many different ways throughout the world.
