In this chapter, we introduce several different video encoding methods. We start with the most commonly used discrete cosine transform (DCT) without predictive coding and the different mechanisms that are used in the process of applying the DCT in modern video encoders. We continue by introducing the predictive coding mechanisms with their respective intricacies and di.erent methods of scalable video coding. An introduction to wavelet-based video encoding and current video standards conclude this chapter.
