Definitions for "Channel coding"
The application of forward error correction codes to an RF channel to improve performance and throughput.
Channel coding is the technique of protecting message signals from signal impairments by adding redundancy to the message signal.
Integrity of the data in the channel is protected by data encoding and error correction techniques. This method is used in the channels with high error rates such as terrestrial and satellite broadcast and video tape recording.
The application of processing algorithms, prior to transmission via a channel (and reverse algorithms at the receiver), used to improve data reliability.
