Reviews and Testimonials
Computer Graphics and Multimedia offers artists, scientists and engineers a look into each other's "world." Providing insight regarding the balance of these elements, this book shows how one's experience can be greatly enhanced by embracing, sharing and collaborating with areas unknown within your discipline. Knowledge in multiple disciplines creates enhanced exploration not only for the artist, but for the technology person as well.

As a digital artist and new media designer who has devoted his thirty year career to the exploration of digital evolution and its value on interdisciplinary collaboration, I was enlightened by the extensive coverage this book provides. The distinct viewpoints of the scholars presented in this book allowed me to explore and examine topics that would have previously been locked up in industry journals and strict subject texts. Professor DiMarco has done an outstanding job of providing a valuable interdisciplinary text that can benefit and satisfy the thirst for knowledge existing in the minds of all information technology practitioners--regardless of the academic department they reside in. The book identifies the most prominent areas of computer graphics and multimedia and allows the specializations of the authors to shine through while encouraging collaboration between art, science, and technology. I would highly recommend this scholarly text to anyone who wants to understand and appreciate research topics that provide explanation and clarity to the terms computer graphics and multimedia.

Understanding the technical aspects of the creative business is essential for effective visual communications and solving problems. This book is an excellent reference for people who have only "front-end software/work-station" knowledge of the industry. Fairly representing each individual's responsibilities in the process, it not only discusses typical problems, but offers solutions as well. If you are a professional or scholar involved in digital technology and need to explore applications beyond your specialty, this book can help you.
