Red Book CD for Digital Audio.
Compact disc digital audio. The original music CD format, storing audio information as digital PCM data. Defined by the Red Book standard.
Compact Disc Digital Audio. Commonly called a CD, this is an audio disc that contains up to 74 minutes of hi-fi stereo sound. A CD, 4 3/4" in diameter, is like a miniature phonograph record, except that only one side of the disc contains recorded material. A CD is a direct access device, and the individual selections can be played back in any sequence. Unlike phonograph records in which the disc platter contains "carved sound" the CD is recorded in digital form as a series of tiny pits that are covered with a clear, protective plastic layer. Instead of a needle vibrating in the grooves, a laser in the CD player shines light onto the pits and picks up the reflections as binary code. Sound is converted in digital code by sampling the sound waves 44.1KHz per second and converting each sample into a 16 bit number. It requires almost a million and a half bits of storage for each second of stereo hi-fi sound. The reason digital sound is so clear is that the numbers are turned into sound electronically. Other forms of CDs (CD ROM, CD ROM X/A, CD-I and DVI) all stem from the audio CD. The standard specification for CD is known as the Red Book.
Compact Disc-Digital Audio. The earliest version of the compact disc as we know it today, developed by Philips and Sony. The Red Book is the standard which CD-DA discs are recorded in.
Full name for conventional audio only compact disc
( Compact Disc - Digital Audio) Commonly known as a CD, this is an audio disc containing up to 74 minutes of high-fidelity stereo sound. Unlike a vinyl disc where the needle follows a groove with a variable depth and transmits vibrations, the laser beam detects the presence of hollows on the surface and transmits binary information (0 or 1). The sound is converted to a digital signal 44,1000 times a second, and its value is encoded into 16 bits (for example 1001 0101 1011 1101). Encoding one second of hi-fi sound takes 1.5 million bits. Other CD types exist: the CD-ROM, CD-ROM/XA, and the CD-I. Introduced in the US in 1983, CD sales overtook vinyl in 1986. The Red Book gives specifications for CD-DA.
