Distortion caused in analog-to-digital conversion by a too low rate of data sampling. For audio signals, it usually results in flutter (rapid change in the signal) and, for video signals, in stairsteps-like jagged edges (called 'jaggies') that appear on an image of curved or slanted lines. Cured or subdued by antialiasing techniques such as filtering or super-sampling.
