New media arises, in part, out of the process of digitization. New media objects created on computers result in an immediate, digital deliverable. In “The Language of New Media”, Lev Manovich <ref>Manovich, Lev, "The Language of New Media." page 28.2001.</ref> tells us that “converting continuous data into a numerical representation is called digitization” (p. 28). In other words, “when new media objects are created on computers, they originate in numerical form” (p. 28), meaning that the product begins as a digitized entity. Additionally, “old media” objects can be input into a computer, or digitized. The old media thus becomes new media.
