Abstract

Scalable video coding technique has been desired for many years to realize a reliable transmission of video over heterogeneous networks. In this paper, we present a new system of scalable video broadcasting over wireless networks. For each group of pictures, a number of quality layers are produced using scalable video coding. We design the channel protection schemes using the forward error correction codes for the base layer and the enhancement layers, respectively. Given the clients' distribution, we propose a novel algorithm to determine both the source coding bit-rate and the channel coding bit-rate for each layer to maximize a system-defined utility function. Experimental results can demonstrate the superior of the proposed scheme to other schemes and the improvement is up to 2 dB.
