Bandwidth Compression
  • Any technique to reduce the bandwidth needed to transmit a given amount of information in a given time, or to reduce the time needed to transmit a given amount of information in a given bandwidth. Note: The term implies reducing the normal bandwidth of an information-carrying signal by some means that does not reduce its information content. See also biternary transmission, data compression, necessary bandwidth.
