What is Digitization?

               Digitization is the process of converting information into a digital format. In this format,information is organized into discrete units of data (called bits) that can be separately addressed (usually in multiple-bit groups called bytes).

               This is the binary data that computers and many devices with computing capacity (such as digital camera s and digital hearing aid s) can process.
Text and images can be digitized similarly: a scanner captures an image (which may be an image of text) and converts it to an image file, such as a bitmap. Anoptical character recognition (OCR) program analyzes a text image for light and dark areas in order to identify each alphabetic letter or numeric digit, andconverts each character into an ASCII code.


             Audio and video digitization uses one of many analog-to-digital conversion processes in which a continuously variable (analog) signal is changed,without altering its essential content, into a multi-level (digital) signal. The process of sampling measures the amplitude (signal strength)of an analog waveform at evenly spaced time markers and represents the samples as numerical values for input as digital data.Digitizing information makes it easier to preserve, access, and share. For example, an original historical document mayonly be accessible to people who visit its physical location, but if the document content is digitized, it can be made availableto people worldwide. There is a growing trend towards digitization of historically and culturally significant data.
