Abstract: This seminar will present the various impacts associated (technological, social, environmental, physiological and psychological) with broadcasting and connected digital media. Digital ICT technology has grown at an unprecedented rate and shows no sign of slowing down. As broadcast communications has evolved from black and white TV to current HDTV (2k), alongside the mobile market has developed. From a family sitting around one TV set to individuals using several devices at once, society from individuals to banking to education are creating volumes of data that requires storage and instant access. Content is now available anywhere, anytime and on any connected device. Digital connected media and communication technologies and the resulting connected world are celebrated as symbolic of human progress but the concerns/damage are essentially invisible to users. This seminar aims to increase awareness of the scale and types of impacts that affect today and will affect society in the future.
