The performance of a vector quantizer can be improved by using a variable-rate code. Three variable-rate vector quantization systems are applied to speech, image, and video sources and compared to standard vector quantization and noiseless variable-rate coding approaches. The systems range from a simple and flexible tree-based vector quantizer to a high-performance, but complex, jointly optimized vector quantizer and noiseless code. The systems provide significant performance improvements for subband speech coding, predictive image coding, and motion-compensated video, but provide only marginal improvements for vector quantization of linear predictive coefficients in speech and direct vector quantization of images. Criteria are suggested for determining when variable-rate vector quantization may provide significant performance improvement over standard approaches
