Electronic system which represents audio data and signals in the form of 0's and 1's
A series of coded pulses that, according to their absence or presence, can carry streams of data. Their format may use either discrete or separate physical levels.
A way of encoding information. On digital networks, data doesn`t need to go though the extra step of being converted to an analog signal, voice is sampled and coded in a way similar to how it is recorded on a CD. Digital networks are fast replacing analog ones as they offer improved sound quality, secure transmission and can handle data directly asâ€¦
Transmission of data using binary (0 & 1). A digital signal viewed with on oscilloscope is in the form of a square wave.
Transmission of information through a signal that can take on only certain discrete values (e.g. a bit with values 0 or 1 or a modulation symbol with 2 or more values). Compare with analogue.
(Lighting) The system used to convert the many outputs of a lighting desk into a single signal that can be transmitted over a small cable to the dimmer racks, thus saving an enormous weight and amount of lighting control cable.
(Audio) The system used to convert an normal analog sound into digital numbers that can be transmitted, then converted back into sound. The system used in compact audio disks.
Using an electronic signal to send information.
Example: Nowadays we live in a digital world.

(Digital cameras and photo printers) Opposite of analogue. Digital information is made up of a limited number of gradations (e.g. 256 colours, 8 bit). The change from one digital element to the next is always â€œstep by stepâ€? and not continuous.Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/20472

The phrase â€œdigital audio recordingâ€? is contrasted with â€œanalog audio recording.â€? Long-playing phonograph records are analog recordings and they capture information in a continuously-variable form. Digital, in contrast, involves binary numbers--1's and 0's. Digital encoding can â€œthinkâ€? only in terms of the binar...Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/20532
Digital can refer to electronic signals or to components of an electronic system. Digital signals have only two voltage levels, described as 'HI' and 'LO', or 'OFF' and 'ON'. In a real component, 'HI' might be represented by +5V d.c. and 'LO' by 0V d.c. A digital component is one which works with only digital signals. Here are some examples of digi...Found on http://www.users.zetnet.co.uk/computing/MainPage/SecDepts/Physics/Resources
Designs and parts that represent exact values (usually 0 and 1, or FALSE and TRUE.). The type of electronics is also often know as Logic Circuits. See also Analogue. Note that even digital circuits represent their 'digital' values as analogues - e.g. a logic system might sense 0 as a voltage less than 0.8V, and 1 as more than 1.8V. Drivers would no...Found on http://www.vutrax.co.uk/glossary.htm

Made of or using distinct digits or numerical values, rather than continuously variable values. Most often used to refer to information existing in electronic form as Ones and Zeroes.

Instead of sending the picture dot-by-dot, it is sent as a 'binary data-stream' which can include the entire picture every second or so, and a sequence of 'changes' in the interval, all of which is compressed.

The use of Binary data to represent information, 'Binary' meaning that the data (audio, video, whatever) has been reduced to many values which have one of two states, positive and non positive. Positive is represented by 1, and non positve by 0. Each value is known as a 'bit'. For more on 'Digital' within an audio context, see Sample.

General term for all radio frequency wave signals that have been transformed into binary units of data (bits). The transformation of all video and audio signal information into bits is fundamental to expanding the opportunities for multimedia and convergent applications sharing the same output source (i.e. TV or PC screen).

A system whereby information is represented by binary digits, or 'bits.' Binary information has two states, '0' and '1,'or 'on' and 'off,' and can thus be easily processed by electronic systems. Analog information can be converted to and from digital information via devices called 'Analog to Digital Converters' or 'Digital to Analog Converters.'
