Short for Electronic Discovery Reference Model, EDRM is an e-discovery standard that was designed to improve systems interoperability and the transfer of electronically stored information (ESI) between applications involved anywhere within the discovery process. The EDRM project was first launched in May 2005 with the completed model being placed in the public domain in the following year, in May 2006. Two subset standards were launched from the original EDRM project including the following:
EDRM Metrics: Intended to provide a standard approach and a generally accepted language for measuring the full range of electronic discovery activities.
EDRM XML: An XML schema to facilitate movement of electronic information from one step of the electronic discovery process to the next, one software program to the next, and one organization to the next.
In video terminology, EDS is short for Enhanced Data Services. It’s the older name for the American standard that specifies the delivery of metadata sent with any NTSC video signal, such as a time signal or station identification. EDS is now called Extended Data Services and abbreviated as XDS.
Short for Electronic Delay Storage Automatic Calculator, EDSAC was an early computer dated around 1949. EDSAC performed its first calculation at the Cambridge University in England. EDSAC used mercury delay lines for memory and 3,000 vacuum tubes for logic. Programs were input using 5-hole punched tape and output was via a teleprinter.
Short for Enhanced Definition Television, EDTV is a common name for a particular subset of the DTV (Digital Television) standards, but is considered to be specifically a part of the HDTV format. EDTV offers advancements over SDTV, but not near the quality and performance of HDTV. On a large display screen, EDTV only simulates HDTV […]
Abbreviation of Enhanced Expanded Memory Specification, an enhanced version of the original EMS, which enables DOS applications to use more than 1MB (megabyte) of memory. EEMS was developed by AST, Quadram, and Ashton-Tate to improve the performance of the original version of EMS. Subsequently, Lotus, Intel, and Microsoft developed the LIM 4.0 version of EMS, […]
Pronounced double-ee-prom or e-e-prom, short for electrically erasable programmable read-only memory. EEPROM is a special type of PROM that can be erased by exposing it to an electrical charge. Like other types of PROM, EEPROM retains its contents even when the power is turned off. Also like other types of ROM, EEPROM is not as […]
