Abstract: This work addresses the design of minimum redundancy variable-to-variable length (V2V) codes and studies their suitability for using them in the probability interval partitioning entropy (PIPE) coding concept as an alternative to binary arithmetic coding. Several properties and new concepts for V2V codes are discussed and a polynomial-based principle for designing V2V codes is proposed. Various minimum redundancy V2V codes are derived and combined with the PIPE coding concept. Their redundancy is compared to the binary arithmetic coder of the video compression standard H.265/HEVC.
