This paper examines the use of arithmetic coding in conjunction with the error resilient entropy code (EREC). The constraints on the coding model are discussed and simulation results are presented and compared to those obtained using Huffman coding. These results show that without the EREC, arithmetic coding is less resilient than Huffman coding, while with the EREC both systems yield comparable results
