Layered H.264 video transmission with hierarchical QAM
In multimedia communication systems, channel bandwidth and probability of error are the two main limitations that affect the quality of service. Therefore, in applications such as video over mobile networks, a video codec should cope with the erroneous situations of the channel as well as the bandwidth limitation. There are several techniques to make a video bitstream robust to the channel error. Layered video coding in conjunction with unequal error protection is a common method that provides error resilience. Hierarchical quadratic amplitude modulation (HQAM) is an efficient method that provides the unequal priority control for communication channels without adding any redundancy to the transmitted data. To generate the layers in the H.264/AVC video coding standard, the Data Partitioning technique has been included. Scalability is another efficient layering technique that is not entirely supported in the current specification of H.264/AVC. This paper proposes an SNR scalable scheme ...
