Title: Encoding and decoding different resolution video signals for display on plural units

Abstract: An integrative encoding system for encoding and transmitting a plurality of video signals having different resolutions that correspond to a plurality of display units. The integrative encoding system has a compression processor, an editing processor, and an integrated services digital broadcasting (ISDB) transmitter. The compression processor performs adaptive dynamic range coding (ADRC) to compress each of said plurality of video signals on a block basis by reducing the dynamic range. An adaptive decoding system receives and decodes the transmitted plurality of video signals for display by the plurality of display units.
