MPEG 2 Prediction

This diagram shows the very basic aspects of prediction.  It does not show motion compensation or the decoder that is in the encoder to produce the anchor pictures.  The anchor pictures are previously encoded and decoded pictures that are available at the encoder because the encoder contains a decoder.  See Encoder Configuration for an explanation of the need for decoding in the encoder.
