  Baudot code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Baudot code, named after its inventor Émile Baudot, is a character set predating EBCDIC and ASCII and used originally and primarily on teleprinters.
Baudot's original code, developed around 1874 is known as International Telegraph Alphabet No 1, and is no longer used.
Recently, the Baudot code was made famous by the British band, Coldplay, who used the code as the album art of their third album, XandY.

 Emile Baudot By Johnny Jung
Emile Baudot was born in 1845, Magneux, France and died on March1903, Sceaux.
Baudot used a different type of code for his system because Morse code didn't lend itself to automation, this was due to the uneven length and size of bits required for each letter.
During this period of twenty years, Baudot installations multiplied in France and spread in foreign countries, everywhere assuring excellent service in doubling, tripling, or quadrupling the efficiency of the wires.

 Some words on the life and work of Mr. Baudot
Baudot never ceased to aid us in our efforts to penetrate all the mysteries of his admirable apparatus; for entire hours we handled the plans and diagrams in the small rooms on the fourth floor of the vast hotel on the Rue de Grenelle, where the "Baudot Course" could always be found.
Baudot invented a "retransmitter," consisting of contact springs adapted to the brushes of the electro-needles of the translator; we saw this function at the central post in the presence of the inventor and of Mr.

In Baudot's code, each letter was represented by a five-unit combination of current-on or current-off signals of equal duration; this represented a substantial economy over the Morse system of short dots and long dashes.
Baudot also invented (1894) a distributor system for simultaneous (multiplex) transmission of several messages on the same telegraphic circuit or channel.
In Baudot's alphabet (not code) the signals which created the letters differed not only in length but also in their respective position.

 Baudot Character Code Reference
The Baudot character code system is a method of transmitting basic text messages containing the Roman alphabet and numerals, along with a limited set of symbols.
The earliest Baudot devices were essentially modified typewriters, so the two shift codes performed the same function as setting or releasing the SHIFT LOCK key on a standard typewriter keyboard, mechanically selecting the top or bottom set of characters on the print hammers that would be used from that point on.
The Baudot character code was also used in the early "5-level" two-wire and radio-based "Teleprinters" that appeared early in the 20th century.

 Problem #1: Baudot Data Communication Code
The ideal encoding scheme will provide a unique code for every possible character to be communicated and stored in the computer, but this requires that each group have a sufficient number of bits for each data character.
Baudot uses five bits per character, thus allowing up to 32 distinct characters.
As a technique used to extend this limitation, the code uses up-shift and down-shift modes as is used on a typewriter.

 On the origins of serial communications and data encoding
Baudot's system proved to be fairly successful, and it remained in widespread use in the 20th century until it was displaced by the telephone, and, of course, personal computer communications.
Baudot also left a portion of his name to posterity in the form of the “Baud rate,” which refers to the number of data signaling events that occur in a second.
The reason Baudot was forced to limit his character code to 5 bits — and hence leave out the lower case Latin letters — was because of hardware constraints.
