MDA Monochrome Display Adapter. MDA is a video display card introduced by IBM which did not have any graphics mode of any kind, but could display high resolution text characters. The MDA card featured a single monochrome text mode which could display 80 columns by 25 lines of high resolution text characters. This high character resolution was a feature meant to facilitate business and word processing use. MDA was introduced at the same time as the CGA card, which was aimed at PC users requiring bitmapped graphics and/or colour, rather than high resolution text.
Mbps Megabyte per second A megabyte per second (MB/s or MBps) is a unit of data transfer rate equal to: * 8,000,000 bits per second, or * 1,000,000 bytes per second, or * 1,000 kilobytes per second, or * 8 megabits per second.
Multimedia Multimedia is media and content that uses a combination of different content forms. The term is used in contrast to media which only uses traditional forms of printed or hand-produced material. Multimedia includes a combination of text, audio, still images, animation, video, and interactivity content forms. Multimedia can be recorded, played, displayed or accessed by information content processing devices, such as computers and electronic devices, but can also be part of a live performance. Multimedia (as an adjective) also describes electronic media devices used to store and experience multimedia content.
MPEG1 MPEG-1 is a standard for lossy compression of video and audio. It is designed to compress VHS-quality raw digital video and CD audio down to 1.5 Mbit/s (26:1 and 6:1 compression ratios respectively) without excessive quality loss, making video CDs, digital cable/satellite TV and digital audio broadcasting (DAB) possible.
MPEG2 MPEG-2 is a standard for "the generic coding of moving pictures and associated audio information". It describes a combination of lossy video compression and lossy audio data compression methods which permit storage and transmission of movies using currently available storage media and transmission bandwidth
Monkeys Audio Monkey's Audio is a file format for audio data compression. Being a lossless format, Monkey's Audio does not discard data during the process of encoding, unlike lossy compression methods such as AAC, MP3, Vorbis and Musepack. Data file compression is employed in order to reduce bandwidth, file transfer time, and/or storage requirements. A digital recording (such as a CD) encoded to the Monkey's Audio format can be decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data.
