<span class="postbody"><font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><font size="2" face="Verdana">An error-correction encoding system that cycles data multiple times through a mathematical transformation in order to increase the effectiveness of the error correction, especially for burst errors (errors concentrated closely together, as from a scratch or physical defect).
