Author(s): Jun Xu; Xiaokang Yang; Shibao Zheng; Li Song

Paper Abstract

We address the problem of unequal error protection (UEP) for SNR enhancement layer network abstraction layer (NAL) units of scalable video coding extension of H.264/AVC standard over wireless packet-erasure channel. We develop a UEP scheme by jointly selecting SNR NAL units and allocating unequal amounts of protection to selected NAL units for every group of pictures in the sequence. A simple heuristic algorithm is proposed to quickly derive the protection pattern. Experimental results demonstrate the proposed UEP scheme provides significant error resilience.
