Two-dimensional transform coding and hybrid transform/DPCM coding techniques have been investigated extensively for image coding. This paper presents a theoretical and experimental extension of these techniques to the coding of sequences of correlated image frames. Two coding methods are analyzed: three-dimensional cosine transform coding, and two-dimensional cosine transform coding within an image frame combined with DPCM coding between frames. Theoretical performance estimates are developed for the coding of Markovian image sources. Simulation results are presented for transmission over error-free and binary symmetric channels.
