Due to the popularity of the prediction concept in time series analysis, predictive coding has been an attractive approach, particularly in lossless image compression. Utilization of prediction in time series not only makes use of residual encoding of the prediction error, but also describes and models the behavior of the underlying process. Unfortunately, this approach seems to have limited most of the scientists in the compression society to focus only to causal (or windowed) predictors, which are fine tuned to particular signal patterns. This work considers the fundamental formulation of finite extent data compression by making use of 'adaptive multi-channel' prediction that is constructed by comparing prediction values of separate predictors (called, the multiple predictor cooperation). The deliberately generated channels are observed to have sharp error distributions with different bias centers. These biases are centered in a second pass, to produce plausible experimental predictive compression results. © 2013 IEEE.
