Multimedia PC Entertainment System Functions

Multimedia PC Entertainment System Functions

The functions of a multimedia entertainment system are quite varied. Here we examine only the most basic of functions centered on the TV, video, and audio capabilities of the system. Multimedia entertainment systems can be used as a complete photographic studio when combined with a good digital camera, or they may act as a video editing studio when used with a digital camcorder. These functions are not examined here because they are a definite sidetrack to our SOHO LAN core theme.

Viewing TV

The primary functions of a multimedia entertainment PC system center on television viewing. Next to the refrigerator being the most used household appliance (it is on 24/7, cooling the beer) and the home heating and cooling system, the television is used more than almost anything else. It should be no surprise that the television functions of our multimedia entertainment PC system are used more than any other functions. Our multimedia entertainment PC system has several thousand hours of TV viewing versus a few hundred hours performing other tasks. Viewing a TV program in a small screen is shown in Figure A.12.
