Digital to Analogue Converter
(DAC) is the circuitry that turns digital signals into
analogue signals. DVD players have a video DAC and an
audio DAC. DAC is measured in bits - the higher the number
of bits the more the original picture information is transferred.
A 24-bit audio DAC will provide better quality sound transfer
than a 20-bit audio DAC.
Abbreviation of the term Direct Current. Electric current
flowing in one direction only

Photo quality inkjet printers now range from 1200 to 2400

files without compensating the copyright-holder.
Desktop publishing (DTP) software was originally developed
to allow computer users to create professional-looking
newsletters, magazines and brochures, complete with pictures,

can do most of these things, DTP software has become more
of a tool for professional designers, though small companies
often use DTP for producing newsletters and reports.
Digital Video Broadcasting. Used to indicate a signal
that is received via a standard TV aerial in digital form
