We examine the situation where there is residual redundancy at the source coder output. We have previously shown that this residual redundancy can be used to provide error correction without a channel encoder. In this paper we extend this approach to conventional source coder/convolutional coder combinations. We also develop a design for nonbinary encoders for this situation. We show through simulation results that the proposed systems consistently outperform conventional source-channel coder pairs with gains of greater than 10 dB at high probability of error.
