Dismissal (employment)
DISMISSAL (referred to informally as FIRING or SACKING) is the termination of employment by an employer against the will of the employee . Though such a decision can be made by an employer for a variety of reasons, ranging from an economic downturn to performance-related problems on the part of the employee, being fired has a strong stigma in many cultures. To be dismissed, as opposed to quitting voluntarily (or being laid off ), is often perceived as being the employee's fault. Finding new employment may often be difficult after being fired, particularly if there is a history of being fired from previous jobs, if the reason for firing is for some serious infraction, or the employee did not hold the job very long. Job seekers will often not mention jobs that they were fired from on their resumes; accordingly, unexplained gaps in employment are often regarded as a red flag

DVB-T
DVB-T
DVB-T
is an abbreviation for "DIGITAL VIDEO BROADCASTING — TERRESTRIAL"; it is the DVB European-based consortium standard for the broadcast transmission of digital terrestrial television that was first published in 1997 and first broadcast in the UK in 1998. This system transmits compressed digital audio , digital video and other data in an MPEG transport stream , using coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing ( COFDM or OFDM) modulation. It is also the format widely used worldwide (including North America) for Electronic News Gathering for transmission of video and audio from a mobile newsgathering vehicle to a central receive point

64-QAM
QUADRATURE AMPLITUDE MODULATION (QAM) is both an analog and a digital modulation scheme. It conveys two analog message signals, or two digital bit streams , by changing (modulating) the amplitudes of two carrier waves , using the amplitude-shift keying (ASK) digital modulation scheme or amplitude modulation (AM) analog modulation scheme. The two carrier waves of the same frequency, usually sinusoids , are out of phase with each other by 90° and are thus called quadrature carriers or quadrature components — hence the name of the scheme. The modulated waves are summed, and the final waveform is a combination of both phase-shift keying (PSK) and amplitude-shift keying (ASK), or, in the analog case, of phase modulation (PM) and amplitude modulation. In the digital QAM case, a finite number of at least two phases and at least two amplitudes are used

Streaming Media
STREAMING MEDIA is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb "to stream" refers to the process of delivering or obtaining media in this manner; the term refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself, and is an alternative to file downloading , a process in which the end-user obtains the entire file for the content before watching or listening to it. A client end-user can use their media player to begin to play the data file (such as a digital file of a movie or song) before the entire file has been transmitted. Distinguishing delivery method from the media distributed applies specifically to telecommunications networks , as most of the delivery systems are either inherently streaming (e.g. radio , television , streaming apps or inherently non-streaming (e.g. books , video cassettes , audio CDs )

QPSK
Phase-shift keying
Phase-shift keying
(\'PSK) is a digital modulation process which conveys data by changing (modulating) the phase of a reference signal (the carrier wave ). The modulation occurs by varying the sine and cosine inputs at a precise time. It is widely used for wireless LANs , RFID and Bluetooth
Bluetooth
communication. Any digital modulation scheme uses a finite number of distinct signals to represent digital data. PSK uses a finite number of phases, each assigned a unique pattern of binary digits . Usually, each phase encodes an equal number of bits. Each pattern of bits forms the symbol that is represented by the particular phase. The demodulator , which is designed specifically for the symbol-set used by the modulator, determines the phase of the received signal and maps it back to the symbol it represents, thus recovering the original data

576I is a standard-definition video mode originally used for broadcast television in most countries of the world where the utility frequency for electric power distribution is 50 Hz. Because of its close association with the color encoding system, it is often referred to as simply PAL

when compared to its 60 Hz (typically, see PAL-M ) NTSC -color-encoded counterpart, 480i . In digital applications it is usually referred to as "576i"; in analogue contexts it is often called "625 LINES", and the aspect ratio is usually 4:3 in analogue transmission and 16:9 in digital transmission . The 576 identifies a vertical resolution of 576 lines, and the i identifies it as an interlaced resolution

Anamorphic Widescreen
ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN is a process by which a comparatively wide widescreen image is vertically expanded to fit into a storage medium (photographic film, for example) with a narrower aspect ratio . Compatible play-back equipment (a projector with modified lens) can then recompress the vertical dimension to show the original widescreen image. This is typically used to allow one to store widescreen images on a
