Recently portable computers and mobile communications have been developed rapidly. Along with the developments of mobile computing environment, the demands of transmitting images over wireless channels are growing. However, high efficiency image coding techniques are not designed for the wireless communication channels. The use of variable length codes (VLCs) in those coding techniques makes a receiver hard to synchronize with the codewords on the noisy channel. On the other hand, a variable length code transmission technique utilizing multicode CDM (Code Division Multiplex) has been proposed. In this paper, the multicode CDM technique is applied to wireless transmission of images compressed by the H.263 algorithm. Especially, the proposed technique is employed for motion vector transmission. In consequence, the proposed transmission technique reduces the required Eb/N0 as compared with the conventional transmission technique.
