A two-dimensional, 32nd-order orthogonal transform coding system which performs three types of transformations in realtime for NTSC color television signals has been developed. This paper reports on a hardware realization of this system, the optimum bitassignments for 32 and 22 Mbit/s transmission rates and the effects of bit errors during transmission. Through the evaluation of picture quality, the system gave a fine quality of pictures after compressing an 8-bit digitized television signal into 3 bits/pel corresponding to 32 Mbit/s transmission, and a passable quality of pictures by 2.25 bits/ pel corresponding to 22 Mbit/s transmission.
