Clipping Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
Telecommunication Standard Terms
1. In telephony, the loss of the initial or final parts of a word, words, or syllable, usually caused by the nonideal operation of voice-actuated devices. 2. The limiting of instantaneous signal amplitudes to a predetermined maximum value. (188 ) 3. In a display device, the removal of those parts of display elements that lie outside of a given boundary.
RF Electronics
The removal of that portion of the signal below or above a pre-set level.
Technical English by wpv
The term applied to the phenomenon which occurs when an output signal is limited in some way by the full range of an amplifier, ADC or other device. When this occurs, the signal is flattened at the peak values, the signal approaches the shape of a square wave, and high frequency components are introduced. Clipping may be hard, as is the case when the signal is strictly limited at some level; or it may be soft, in which case the clipping signal continues to follow the input at some reduced gain.

Clipping usually occurs in the amplifier when it is turned up too high, but it can occur in maladjusted circuits in a VCR or TV set. Color Burst The signal, at approximately 3.57MHz in the video bandwidth, that stores the instantaneous intensity and hue of the color for a particular spot in the TV image.
The phenomenon where an input signal exceeds the capability of electronic or digital equipment to reproduce the signal. This results in an audible distortion (analog) or an incomprehensible noise (digital). (Sound)
