## DPCM

(Differential PCM) A PCM technique that codes the difference between sample points to compress the digital data. Because audio waves propagate in predictable patterns, DPCM predicts the next sample and codes the difference between the prediction and the actual point. The differences are smaller numbers than the numerical value of each sample on the full scale and thereby reduce the resulting bitstream. See PCM, ADPCM and sampling.

During the interframe coding mode, the DPCM is in operation.
Linear prediction [8], [9], where the prediction of the current sample is calculated as the linear combination of the previous samples, is the basis of a DPCM system.
The reason for using the DPCM structure is that for most sources of practical interest, the variance of the prediction error is substantially smaller than that of the source.
After zigzag scanning the coefficients in each block, the quantized DC coefficients are encoded by differential pulse code modulation (DPCM), and the quantized AC coefficients are encoded by run length coding (RLC).
