Paper Abstract

This paper describes an adaptive intra-interframe codec with motion-compensation followed by an entropy coding for prediction error signal as well as for motion vector information. This adaptive prediction is highly efficient even for very fast motion as well as scene change where motion compensation is ineffective. Prediction error and vector information are code-converted for transmission by means of an entropy coding where contiguous zero signal is run-length coded and non-zero signal is Huffman-coded. Based upon the algorithms described in this paper a practical codec has been developed for videoconference use at sub-primary rate. According to a brief subjective evaluation, the codec provides good picture quality even at a 384 kb/s transmission bit rate.
