DCC - Computer Definition
(1) (Digital Content Creation) The development of newsworthy, educational and entertainment material for distribution over the Internet or other digital media.
(2) (Digital Command Control) A model railroad control system that allows multiple trains to be operated independently. Instead of separating tracks into separate blocks as done in earlier systems, DCC combines power and a different modulated signal to each DCC locomotive on the same track.
(3) (Distributed Call Center) An earlier automatic call distribution (ACD) system from Teloquent Communications, Billerica, MA that ran on standard PCs and used public ISDN lines. In 2003, Teloquent was acquired by Syntellect Inc., a division of Enghouse Systems Limited.
(4) (Digital Compact Cassette) A digital tape format that used a variation of the common analog audio cassette. DCC never caught on.
(5) (Direct Cable Connection) A Windows 95/98 feature that allows PCs to be cabled together for data transfer. DCC actually sets up a network connection between the two machines. Even though it is not a dial-up situation, DCC requires that the Dial-Up Networking function be activated.
(6) (Defensive Counter-Cyber) See DOD cyberspace glossary.
