The authors present a recursive quantizer which is simple to implement and provides performance which is as good or better than vector quantizers for certain important sources. The recursive quantizer provides a simple technique, both in terms of design and operation, for use with entropy coding. It also provides a simple quantization technique for use in noisy channel conditions where a variable length code would be inappropriate but performance greater than that provided by Lloyd-Max quantizers is desired.
