FYI: We try to leave jargon out of our videos, but if you want to learn more about this topic, here are some handy keywords to get your googling started:
Data – information, typically stored on computers via electrical signals
Electrons – small elementary particles that flow through wires to transmit power and data
Photons – small elementary particles of light that carry information from screens to your face
Local Metro Network – computer network on the scale of a city, town, neighborhood, etc
Live action video – a video recording of the real world (people, scenery, etc) created using a camera
Data compression – storing data (pictures, video, text files, etc) in less space than the way it’s normally displayed. Kind of like a modern version of microfilm. Or words.
