The Definition of Digitization

As is defined, digitization is the process of converting information into a digital format, i.e. file that is readable by computer, in which the information is organized into bits. Strictly speaking, digitizing simply means the conversion of analog source material into a numerical format (From Wikipedia). Since digitized files can be easily played on computer and mobile devices, more and more users are looking for a way to convert their DVD files to digital copies, so as to freely enjoy those media files even without a DVD player.
