The impact of inter-layer network coding on the relative performance of MRC/MDC WiFi media delivery
A primary challenge in multicasting video in a wireless LAN is to deal with the client diversity – clients may have different channel characteristics and hence receive different numbers of transmissions from the AP. A promising approach to overcome this problem is to combine scalable video coding techniques such as MRC or MDC, which divide a video stream into multiple substreams, with inter-layer network coding. The fundamental challenge in such an approach is to determine the strategy of coding the packets across different layers that maximizes the number of decoded layers at all clients. In [7], the authors showed that inter-layer NC indeed helps the delivery of MRC coded media over the WiFi, and proposed how to efficiently search for the optimal coding strategies online. In this paper, we study (1) how NC can help with WiFi delivery of MDC media, and (2) in particular, due to the different decoding requirements of MDC from MRC, whether WiFi delivery of MDC media can benefit mor...
