Definition of Buffer:

  1. Store (data) in a buffer while it is being processed or transferred.

  2. A solution that resists changes in pH when acid or alkali is added to it. Buffers typically involve a weak acid or alkali together with one of its salts.

  3. Small amount of memory used for temporary storage of data, usually to compensate for differences in processing or transmitting speeds of two connected devices, such as a computer and a printer. It serves as a reservoir in which the higher speed device (computer) dumps the data which is then trickled to the slower one (printer). Buffering is also required where a constant high bit rate has to be maintained, such as in compress-decompression process used in transmission or playing of audio/video files. See also cache.

  4. A person or thing that prevents incompatible or antagonistic people or things from coming into contact with or harming each other.

  5. Treat with a chemical buffer.

  6. Lessen or moderate the impact of (something).

  7. A temporary memory area in which data is stored while it is being processed or transferred, especially one used while streaming video or downloading audio.

A buffer is a storage device used to account for differences in data rate or the timing of an event when transferring data from one device to another.

Temporary areas of memory in the RAM of your camera or your computer. This acts as a temporary storage area for data processed by the CPU before being stored on another device. For example, if you're streaming and your digital camera's RAM buffer is full, it will slow down much more slowly as the buffer on your Compact Flash card or other device is emptied.
