Then, instead of storing the actual value (which could be a very large number), ADPCM stores the difference between the predicted and actual values (which is generally a much smaller number). Since ADPCM stores smaller numbers than DPCM, the size of the output data stream is also smaller (more compressed). On average, ADPCM achieves a compression ratio of 4:1.
