Electronic media is media that utilizes electronics or electromechanical energy for the end user (audience) to access the content. This is in contrast to static media (mainly print media), which is most often created electronically, but doesn't require electronics to be accessed by the end user in the printed form. The primary electronic media sources familiar to the general public are better known as video recordings, audio recordings, multimedia presentations, slide presentations, CD-ROM and Online Content. Most new media is in the form of digital media. However, electronic media may be in either analog or digital format.
