How Digital Modulation Can Simplify Your Entertainment

As all kinds of audio-visual technology have developed, so have innovations that link this technology together. Think of a common way to listen to music from your iPod in the car. Using a radio tuner, you can broadcast the output from your iPod to a particular wavelength so you can listen to songs or podcasts through your own personal radio station.

That's amazing technology already. But did you know that you can get similar results for audio-visual equipment too? This is digital modulation.

Like the iPod radio tuner, digital modulation takes the signal from an audio-visual media player and turns it into a digital channel your antenna system can pick up. Soon you can flip through this content next to your free-to-watch channels.

This process might sound like just a neat trick, but it can make your media consumption a lot easier. Here are some uses for digital modulation that you might not have thought of before.
