This is a descriptive study of multimedia information systems, their current and potential uses, benefits, and drawbacks to provide the basis for implementation of multimedia technology in the U. S. Coast Guard. Multimedia is generally considered to be a mix of text, graphics, sound, and static or full-motion video in an information system. In recent, years, there has been a dramatic surge in the introduction of new multimedia products and the integration of multimedia with more conventional computing. These new applications include databases that use video images or audio recordings, teleconferencing, PC-based video production editors, and audio/music synthesizers, plus many more. Multimedia was found to be a positive development in information technology and is expected to be popularly accepted in very short order. The Coast Guard is not now implementing multimedia technology in its mainstream information processing functions, although several research and development projects involving multimedia are currently in progress. Recommendations are made for earliest evaluation of the new technology and some general implementation guidelines.
