This paper proposes a DPCM algorithm to be deployed for broadcast quality transmission of composite NTSC color TV signal at DS-3 rate (45 Mb/s). Recently, many algorithms have been proposed for TV coding and most of them are based on orthogonal transform such as DCT. DCT is appropriate for high compression. On the other hand, DPCM is the best candidate for highest quality transmission, though it might need a comparatively high transmission rate. DPCM can be directly applied to composite NTSC signal without separation/synthesis of chrominance and luminance components before/after the compression. In case of cascaded connection, no accumulation of coding noise can be achieved unlike transform coding. It has been confirmed, using a complete codec running at DS-3 rate, that the proposed adaptive DPCM is very effective even for composite NTSC signals including the CCIR standard sequences. This adaptive DPCM contributes to rapid progress of a digital broadcast TV transmission network using a high speed medium such as SONET as well as DS- 3 service.
