Paper Abstract

This paper presents an error resilient decoding technique based on the error detection and DCT coefficients recovery for the randomly impaired MPEG-2 bit stream. First, to simulate a more realistic and severe environment, we do not rely on the network support of the packet transport/adaptation protocol for error detection. Therefore, the macroblocks corrupted by the random bit errors are identified by a layered error detection algorithm. Next, assuming a smoothness constraint on image intensity, an object function which describes the inter-sample variations at the boundaries of the lost macroblock and the adjacent macroblocks is defined, and the damaged DCT coefficients are optimally recovered by solving a set of linear equations. Computer simulation results show that the quality of a recovered image is significantly improved even when the bit error rate is as high as 10-5.
