Feedback vs Beamforming - What's the difference?

feedback | beamforming |


As nouns the difference between feedback and beamforming

is that feedback is critical assessment on information produced while beamforming is (physics) a technique in which the phase and amplitude of transmitted signals are modified, by a feedback process, in order to improve transmission speed.

As a verb feedback

is (music) to generate the high-frequency sound by allowing a speaker to cause vibration of the sound generator of a musical instrument connected by an amplifier to the speaker.
