Digitizer

A computer peripheral device that converts an analog signal (images or sound) into a digital signal. With an image, the digitizer sends position information to the computer, either on command from the user (point digitizing) or at regular intervals (continuous digitizing). Digitizers are available in various sizes, ranging from tabletop models (digitizer pads) to large stand-alone units.
