Paper Abstract

Delivering temporally-constrained multimedia streams in heterogeneous environments, offering no guarantee in terms of bandwidth, packet loss, or delay, is a very challenging problem faced today by both the networking and the coding community. Layered coding is often proposed as a solution for rate-based congestion control of video transmission in heterogeneous environments. The problem addressed more specifically here is the design of a responsive mechanism for rate allocation in each layer, that would guarantee the best bandwidth usage for all the receivers. After a review of solutions for congestion and loss control in unicast video communications, the paper describes a rate-based congestion control mechanism for multicast layered video transmission.
