Paper Abstract

We present a new parallel framework for multimedia data transmission over spectrally shaped channels using multicarrier modulation. Source images are first decomposed into a set of layers with different perceptual importance. Unlike the traditional approaches, the layers are transmitted simultaneously, each occupying a number of subchannels. We develop parallel loading algorithms which distribute the transmitted power and data rate among the subchannels efficiently, to provide unequal error protection. A power optimized serial transmission system is also developed. Simulation results show that the parallel transmission system achieve significant performance improvement compared to the optimized serial transmission and the existing loading algorithms developed for data transmission. Performance comparison under different parameters are also presented. The proposed algorithms are well suited for both Additive Gaussian White Noise (AGWN) channels and spectrally shaped channels which are typical in ADSL systems. Numerical comparison for different parameters are also given.
