Abstract: Predictive coding methods such as DPCM or motion compensated hybrid video coders MPEG family are shown to adequately compress the input signal well with a reasonable complexity. The performance of these coders, however, degrades considerably when the transmission channel is not error-free. This is due to the error propagation at the decoder where a single error can have catastrophic consequences. A low-rate feedback channel is shown to improve the overall performance. In this report, we consider two such feedback-based methods and provide the analysis and investigate different trade-offs.
