In this paper, we propose a new approach to video compression based on the principle of Set Partitioning In Hierarchical Tree
algorithm (SPIHT). Our approach, the modified SPIHT3D (MSPIHT3D), distributes entropy differently than SPIHT3D and
also optimizes the coding. This approach can produce results that are a significant improvement on the Peak Signal-to-Noise
Ratio (PSNR) and compression ratio obtained by SPIHT3D algorithm, without affecting the computing time.
KEYWORDS: video compression,, MSPIHT3D, arithmetic Coding, PSNR, Compression ratio.
