Distributed source coding without Slepian-Wolf compression

Slepian-Wolf (SW) coding, which is concerned with separate near-lossless compression of correlated sources (with joint decoding), forms the basis of distributed source coding (DSC) and can be used to exploit the correlation among quantized sources in lossy DSC problems such as Wyner-Ziv (WZ) coding and multiterminal (MT) source coding. However, SW coding is… CONTINUE READING
