Two of the most efficient techniques for coding video signals
are transform coding and differential pulse code modulation. Both
systems have been used successfully for coding pictorial data, and

Hybrid coding (a combination of the two techniques) embodies the
most attractive features of both. It is simple in implementation
and achieves a good degree of data compression. [Continues.]
