          Application 08/020,993                                                      


               Representative claim 7 is reproduced below:                            
               7.  Method of transmitting intraframe coded and interframe             
          coded video signals, comprising the steps of                                
                    receiving a video signal composed of frames of video              
          data;                                                                       
                    dividing each of said frames of video data into a                 
          plurality of blocks;                                                        
                    intraframe coding or interframe coding said plurality             
          of blocks of each of said frames of video data to produce                   
          intraframe coded data or interframe coded data, respectively;               
                    determining a correlation between one of said plurality           
          of blocks of one of said frames of video data and a corresponding           
          block of a preceding frame of video data;                                   
                    setting a quantization width in accordance with said              
          correlation;                                                                
                    quantizing said interframe coded data or said                     
          intraframe coded data to be transmitted in accordance with said             
          quantization width to produce quantized interframe coded data or            
          quantized intraframe coded data, respectively; and                          
                    transmitting said quantized intraframe coded data.                

               The following references relied on by the examiner are:                
          Tanaka et al. (Tanaka)        5,144,426      Sep. 1, 1992                   
                                                  (filed Oct. 12, 1990)               
               Claims 7 to 28 stand rejected under 35 U.S.C.  102(e) as              
          being anticipated by Tanaka.                                                
               Rather than repeat the positions of the appellant and the              
          examiner, reference is made to the briefs and the answer for the            
          respective details thereof.
