This paper introduces a subband video coding algorithm for operation over a continuum of rates from very low to very high. The key elements of the system are statistical rate-distortion-constrained motion estimation and compensation, multistage residual quantization, high order statistical modeling, and arithmetic coding. The method is unique in that it provides an improved mechanism for dynamic spatial and temporal coding. Motion vectors are determined in a nontraditional way, using a rate-distortion cost criterion. This results in a smoother and more consistent motion field, relative to that produced by conventional block matching algorithms. Control over the system computational complexity and performance may be exercised easily
