Lossless predictive coding of electric signal waveforms


Abstract: This paper describes a new predictive coding algorithm designed for lossless compression of electric signal waveforms. Prediction coefficients are obtained from the sinusoidal signal autoregressive model. Predictors for a single sinusoid and the sum of two and three sinusoids are considered. Integer-to-integer coding is obtained by the proper (i.e. reversible) quantization of computations. The proposed coding algorithm shows better performance than the commonly used 2nd order differences coding and linear prediction coding that is optimal in the least squares sense.
