This paper presents some theoretical properties of a predictive quantizing system for the transmission of random signals. Expressions for the mean-squared error are derived for some input processes, and several bounds are also derived. The gaussian case is discussed in detail, and it is shown that the predictive system gives no improvement over the conventional communication system. The class of linear Markov processes is also considered. In this case, an example is presented3hich clearly illustrates the limited region of improvement for the predictive system. The relation of the improvement to the correlation of the input samples is also illustrated.
