Paper Abstract

Video transmission over variable-bandwidth networks requires instantaneous bit-rate adaptation at the server site to provide an acceptable decoding quality. For this purpose, recent developments in video coding aim at providing a fully embedded bit-stream with seamless adaptation capabilities in bit-rate, frame-rate and resolution. A new promising technology in this context is wavelet-based video coding. Wavelets have already demonstrated their potential for quality and resolution scalability in still-image coding. This led to the investigation of various schemes for the compression of video, exploiting similar principles to generate embedded bit-streams. In this paper we present scalable wavelet-based video-coding technology with competitive rate-distortion behavior compared to standardized non-scalable technology.
