  multimedia
  Multimedia PC
  multimedia system
  
      Any collection of data including text,
     graphics, images, audio and video, or any system for
     processing or interacting with such data.  Often also includes
     concepts from hypertext.
  
     This term was once almost synonymous with CD-ROM in the
     personal computer world because the large amounts of data
     involved were best supplied on CD-ROM.  DVDs and broadband
     Internet connections have now largely replaced CDs as the
     means of delivery.
  
     A "multimedia PC" typically includes software for playing DVD
     video, 5.1 audio hardware and can display video on a
     television.  It may also include a television receiver and
     software to record broadcast television to disk and play it
     back.  The Multimedia Personal Computer (MPC) standard was
     an attempt to improve compatibility between such systems.
