Meaning of REALAUDIO

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A program from real media for playing audio over the internet, and the lossy audio compression format it uses.

The system is implemented as a client/server architecture. The RealAudio server incorporates an encoder which compresses sound into RealAudio files. The client side is a web browser plug-in or add-on (a recent version of internet explorer apparently has built-in support for RealAudio) which allows the stream of data sent from the server to be uncompressed and output using the normal sound facilities of the computer, such as a sound card.

A 14.4 kbps or better modem is required, and a 28.8 KBps connection is recommended for music-quality sound.
