Various video compression techniques are introduced. The basic idea of Discrete Cosine Transform and Motion Estimation compression is outlined, and a detailed example of the decoding of an H.261 video bitstream is demonstrated. More advanced techniques for DCT/ME compression as used in MPEG-2 and H.263 are described. A discussion of video encoders and decoders highlights the fact that `standard- compliant' video systems can yield vastly different results depending on implementation techniques, such as the algorithms used, the use of accelerating hardware.
