Abstract An apparatus for transferring an ordered sequence of data elements from a first location to a second location includes a multiplexor for selecting at least two primary data elements occurring at predetermined intervals within the series, and for selecting at least one intermediate data element occurring within the predetermined intervals between the primary data elements. The apparatus estimates, for each of the intermediate data elements, a value corresponding to the intermediate data element. Each of the estimated values is a predetermined function of an immediately preceding primary data element and an immediately subsequent primary data element in the ordered sequence. The apparatus further includes a transmitter for transmitting each of the primary data elements and the difference elements along the communication channel.
