Definitions for "Digital audio broadcasting"
Standard which describes the method of transmitting digital audio.
Both a generic term and the proprietary name given to a transmission system for radio which uses parts of the upper end of the VHF spectrum. Around eight stations are bundled together into 'multiplexes' of simultaneous transmission on a given receiving frequency.
In the past, sound was transmitted via the analog formats of AM (amplitude modulation) and FM (frequency modulation). Today, pure, crisp, uninterrupted sound is delivered to satellite systems using DAB. The sound is transformed into binary code, which is then sent to a receiver and translated back to its perfect original form.
