History of Multi-Media and How it Affected Video Production:

Multi-Media has been around for a long time. The media started with the Printing Press in 1455 and after Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity in 1780, the media broadened to morse code. Later inventions after the morse code included the telephone in 1876 and the phonograph in 1879. Technology dramatically grew in the 1900's with computers and by the early 1990's, the World Wide Web was discovered. Internet became interactive and this completely changed the world, including multi-media projects. We are now living in the 2000's and video production is seen everywhere on the internet. People have become famous from making online videos and companies have created business by making video webpages. Making videos and sending them through websites have also helped family and friends keep in touch. For more information, click to visit: The History of Media
