Part of the Springer Series in Information Sciences book series (SSINF, volume 5)


The scope of this chapter encompasses the coding of video signals, both black and white and color, to be displayed on a television screen for human viewing. Discussions of image sequences derived from radar, infrared, and acoustic sources as well as image sequence coding for automatic tracking of objects have been excluded.


Prediction Error Video Signal Sampling Pattern Predictive Code Frame Difference 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
