What is embroidery punching and embroidery digitizing?

If you have been doing any machine embroidery or are just new to it, you would have come across the terms embroidery punching and embroidery digitizing. So what is the difference?

The word Embroidery Punching actually dates back to the age of traditional embroidery machines. The code or instructions telling the machine frame how to move was stored on a tape punched with holes. This is how the term embroidery punching came into being. But these days computerized embroidery machines have replaced the traditional machines and are run by the code stored in digital file formats.

So if someone mentions to you that they do embroidery punching they either have a very OLD piece of equipment or they just are not aware of what the term really means.
