Hardware and software used for different types of communication.
- Auditory displays - the use of sound to communicate information from a computer to a user
- Codecs - short for coder-decoder, a device or program used to encode or decode a digital signal
- Modems - short for modulator-demodulater, a device that modulates an analog carrier signal to carry digital information and demodulates the carrier signal to decode information
- Optical communication equipment - any device which transmits information through the use of light
- Radio communication equipment - any device which transmits information using radio waves
- Receivers - a device which converts a radio signal to a usable form through demodulation and decoding
- Repeaters - an electronic device that receives a signal and retransmits it at a higher level or in another form
- Speech codecs - the application of data compression of digital audio signals containing speech
- TV equipment - any device that transmits, receives, or displays television signals
- Telephone equipment - any device that transmits, receives or voices telephone signals
- Transceivers - a transmitter and receiver which are combined and share common circuitry
- Transmitters - an electronic device that uses an antennas to create and transmit radio waves
- Transponders - short for transmission-responder, either a digital device that receives and transmits a signal on a different frequency, or a device which generates a reply signal upon electronic interrogation
- Video codecs - a device or program which codes and decodes visual information
- Video equipment - any device which transmits, receives, or displays visual signals
