The term Digital Data is most commonly used in computing especially where real-world information is converted to binary numeric form as in digital audio and digital photography.
Types of Digital data:-
- More options and flexibility in terms of recording and reviewing media.
- Options in terms of being able to manipulate what is recorded.
- More options being able to share media both socially and for business.
- Much less bulky than analog equivalent.
- Recorded media is more durable.
- It’s more complex so there’s more to go wrong.
- It’s unforgiving if the data is damaged, tends to spoil the whole media packet. E.g. TV if too much data is lost the whole image freezes and scrambled.
- Harder to fix when it does go wrong.
- More expensive to fix when it goes wrong.
- Your privacy is more open to monitoring and easier to be recorded without your knowledge or consent (for both criminals and government).
- Less support for this technology in developing countries.
