    The concept of democracy was introduced in which the individual bits in a coarsely quantized representation of a signal were given equal weight in the approximation to the original signal. It was proved that such democratic representations could not achieve the same accuracy as optimal nondemocratic schemes. Convolutional decoding was found to be convenient in digital to analog conversion.
