Abstract: A video Compression technique plays a vital role in storage & transmission through limited bandwidth. Because of video files contain repeated sequence of still image as a result each second represented by 24 image or more which is represent the motion in video file therefore that repeated sequence provide us large amount from temporal redundancy through similarities of sequence image with few difference between them. In addition to spatial redundancy contained in image data itself. The goal of compression algorithms is to gain best compression ratio with acceptable visual quality, the proposed compression method presented a new approach to satisfy this goal. Our proposed system achieves compression ratio close to the best known video compression techniques MPEG between (1:20- 1:40). This paper presents a method which can be summarized into five stages; the first stage is opening Audio/ Video Interleaved file (AVI) Video file which is called RIFF. AVI. Second stage, is transform color from color space called RGB to YUV which consist of two basis components Y represents the luminance and UV represent the chrominance. the third stage compress sequence of video by using hybrid techniques presented in lossy compression in video code through used of transform technique which is presented by discrete cosine transform to reduce spatial redundancy in image data itself and to reduce temporal redundancy by using motion compensation technique which is employed associated with discrete cosine transform to error image produced. The coefficients of DCT are coded using embedded Zerotree(EZT) algorithm in the fourth stage. Finally the sequence of symbols will be encoded by Run Length Encoding (RLE).
Key words: Video Compression, Discrete Cosine Transform, Embedded Zerotree, Run Length Encoding algorithm

Introduction
Image compression is very important in many applications, especially for progressive transmission, image browsing, and Internet and multimedia applications. The goal of compression is to obtain an image representation while reducing as much as possible the amount of memory needed to encode the image [1]. The task of compression consists of two components, an encoding algorithm that takes a file and generates a “compressed” representation (hopefully with fewer bits), and a decoding algorithm that reconstructs the original file or some approximation of it from the compressed representation. These two components are typically intricately tied together since they both have to understand the shared compressed representation. Compression of video imagery has become a necessity and very important because of transmission and storage of uncompressed video would be extremely costly and impractical. In the first we have to know again the digital video compression performance based on two important points, the first point use transform coding such as discrete cosine transform (DCT) or discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and second point is motion compensation or motion estimation[2].

Many research worked with video and image compression area using DCT, motion estimation, and embedded coding as a method for quantization or encoding coefficients results from one or many transform techniques, but we point to the ones closes to our search. Jermo M Shapiro (1993)[3], introduce effective and computationally simple technique for image compression called (EZW), The embedded wavelet algorithm(EZW) is a simple, yet remarkably effective, image compression algorithm, having the property that the bits in the bit stream are generated in order of importance, yielding a fully embedded code. The EZW algorithm is based on four key concepts: A discrete wavelet transform, Prediction of absence significant information, Entropy-coded successiveapproximation quantization, and Universal lossless data compression. Olivier Egger and others (1995)[4], proposed a new approach can be seen as a generalization of the embedded zerotree wavelet (EZW) algorithm from rectangular images to arbitrarily shaped regions. In the case of compressing rectangular pictures this operation is performed using appropriate block transforms such as DCT or subband/wavelet transforms. Various approaches have been proposed to generalize the block-based techniques to arbitrary shaped regions. These techniques are either

As for the original EZW algorithm the proposed technique is based on three basic blocks. As to be explained. i. without prediction based on other frame. the partial ordering is a result of comparison of transform element (coefficient) magnitudes to a set of octavely decreasing thresholds. ordered bit plane transmission. all of these method used in video codec which explain in Figure (1)[2]. Ayman Darwish (November-2005)[11]. so that a distribution can easily be further compressed by an entropy coder such as Huffman. a shorter scan in each quantization iteration is performed. Amir Said and others (1996)[5]. He explains that an element is significant or insignificant with respect to a given threshold. 2. Special care has been dedicated to retain all the advantages of the EZW algorithm for arbitrarily shaped regions without any compromise. This technique affects the obtained image quality because it is sub-optimal in comparison to the adaptive model arithmetic coding. In this paper.

Amir Said (may-2004)[10]. Each component of the algorithm contributes to the overall speedup. removing the inter – frame element of compression /decompression. The performance of the video compression techniques depends on the amount of spatial and temporal redundancy contained in video data as well as on actual compression techniques used for encoding – with practical code schemes a trade – off between coding performance (high compression with sufficient quality ) and implementation complexity is targeted – thus one of the most method which is used for exploiting spatial redundancy is the transform coding and for exploiting temporal redundancy used motion estimation methods[12].M. depending on whether or not it exceeds that threshold. namely the transformation. presented a fast and modified version of the embedded zero-tree wavelet (EZW) coding algorithm that is based on for low bit-rate still image compression applications.

Subordinate Pass: Output a 1 or a 0 for all coefficients on the subordinate list depending on whether the coefficient is in the upper or lower half of the quantization interval. and split it into three bands that save it into three individual matrices called (red.

all the coefficients that are in absolute value larger than the current threshold are extracted and placed on the subordinate list. in the suggested system. The reason for using this algorithm is to small alphabet of the proposed method with high frequency for specific symbol. loop continued then read data.2. the subordinate pass checks if there is value larger or smaller than the current threshold. a zerotree (t) is coded. Flag2.Run length Encoding (RLE) It's varying known algorithm. Ti represents the threshold comes from dominant pass for current phase. but it is minus. an isolated (z) is coded. significance concept means that the coefficient greater than the current threshold while insignificance concept refers to the coefficient less than the current threshold.'@' refers to similar block (all coefficients have same value).

Step 6. the threshold determines which of Coefficients should be classified as significant and which of coefficients should be classified as insignificant. '-' refers to a new row (in another word new cycle). If the coefficient is larger than the threshold a '1' is assign to the coefficient and if the coefficient is smaller than the threshold a '0' assign to the coefficient. This will prevent them from being coded a gain. Where Tc refers to current threshold which compute to assign zero or one to the coefficient. Step1. There are many methods for finding the threshold for each block.1: If the next character is '#' (which refers to new block). also assign initial value to Flag1. while counter less than 64. in the same time this coefficient is smaller than current threshold.
