This paper describes a coding-oriented segmentation technique for video schemes using an optimization strategy to address the problem of bit allocation. The optimization is based on the rate-distortion theory. Our purpose is to define a method to obtain an 'optimal' partition together with the best coding technique for each region of this partition so that the result is optimal in a rate-distortion sense.
