This paper describes the technology behind the creation of multimedia presentations using a new IBM program product, the Audio Visual Connection® (AVC™). The multimedia approach represents a major innovation in computer technology involving new concepts such as the digitization of audio and video, the involvement of the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI), and the creation of a multimedia story. Two hardware adapters support the AVC: the Audio Capture and Playback Adapter and the Video Capture Adapter. When used with these adapters, the AVC digitizes both stereo audio and color video, performs powerful edit and synchronization functions, defines an interactive user environment, and creates a multimedia presentation using standard IBM Personal System/2® hardware. Additional input is available from MIDI song files, screen capture, and non-AVC image systems. Final results range from passive presentations to interactive applications to sophisticated database front ends.
