Digital Video

General term for video in digital form—or is described in a computer as a series of discrete numerical codes (bits and bytes)—as opposed to analog video. Digital video has an advantage over analog video in that it can be edited pixel by pixel, and it facilitates non-linear video production. Digital video will also not decline in quality as subsequent copies and copies from copies are made. Among the disadvantages of digital video are the extensive processing and memory capacities required to effectively capture and process video.
