We consider a problem in which two encoders each observe one component of a memoryless Gaussian vector-valued source. The encoders separately communicate with a decoder, which attempts to reproduce the vector-valued source subject to constraints on the expected squared error of each component. We determine the minimum sum rate needed to meet a pair of target distortions and thereby complete the determination of the rate region for this problem. The proof involves coupling the problem to a… CONTINUE READING
