Definitions for "Quantization"
A process in which the continuous range of values of an analog signal is sampled and divided into nonoverlapping (but not necessarily equal) subranges, and a discrete, unique value is assigned to each subrange.
The process of converting a sampled sound into a digital value.
The process that divides the continuous range of values of a signal into nonoverlapping (but not necessarily equal) subranges. It then assigns a discrete value of the output to each subrange. Whenever the signal value falls within a given subrange output has the corresponding discrete value.
the act of dividing into quanta or expressing in terms of quantum theory
The fact that light and matter on small scales behave in a discontinuous manner, and manifest themselves in the form of tiny "packets" of energy, called quanta.
In physics, quantization is a procedure for constructing a quantum field theory starting from a classical field theory. This is a generalization of the procedure for building quantum mechanics from classical mechanics. One also speaks of field quantization, as in the "quantization of the electromagnetic field", where one refers to photons as field "quanta" (for instance as light quanta).
to reduce the number of colors or shades of gray in an image, with the goal being to reduce file size while maintaining image quality. Also used to display images with more colors than are available on the display device.
The process of reducing an image with many colors to one with fewer colors, usually in preparation for its conversion to a palette-based image. As a result, most parts of the image (that is, most of its pixels) are given slightly different colors, which amounts to a certain level of error at each location. Since photographic images usually have extended regions of similar colors that get converted to the same quantized color, a quantized image tends to have a flat or banded (contoured) appearance unless it is also dithered.
Color quantization is usually defined as a lossy image compression operation that maps an original full color image to an image with a small color palette. The goal of any quantization algorithm is minimization of a perceived difference between the original and quantized images.
A feature found on SEQUENCERS that corrects sloppy playing by moving notes to the closest beat or other note marker, such as an 8th note or 16th note. Quantization allows correction of a less-than-perfect performance (from a timing standpoint) to perfect tempo. Manufacturers of some devices refer to the quantizing feature as autocorrect.
A function found on sequencers and drum machines that causes notes played at odd times to be "rounded off" to regular rhythmic values. See percentage quantization.
The correction of rhythms in a MIDI sequence. - Category: Recording
In linguistics, a quantized expression is such that, whenever it is true of some entity, it is not true of any proper subparts of that entity. Example: If something is an "apple", then no proper subpart of that thing is an "apple". If something is "water", then many of its subparts will also be "water".
