There are many definitions, but the relevant one for our purposes is that resolution is a measurement of the fineness of detail captured in a representation of something. This could pertain to the level of detail captured in a photograph or displayed on a computer monitor. It could even relate to video frames and time code: 30 frames per second is more resolution than 24 frames per second. We most commonly speak about resolution in terms of digital audio and how much resolution a digital audio system has. In digital audio resolution is affected by the sampling rate and the bit depth of the recording: 24-bit audio is higher resolution that 16-bit audio, and a 48 kHz sample rate is more resolution that a 44.1 kHz sample rate.
