Paper Abstract

A theoretical investigation to evaluate the performance of optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) for compressed video transmission is shown. OCDMA has many advantages than a typical synchronous protocol time division multiple access (TDMA). A pulsed laser transmission of multi channel digital video can be done using various techniques depending on whether the multi channel data are to be synchronous or asynchronous. A typical form of asynchronous digital operation is wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) in which the digital data of each video source are assigned a specific and separate wavelength. A sophisticated hardware such as accurate wavelength control of all lasers and tunable narrow band optical filters at the receivers is required in this case. A major disadvantage with CDMA is the reduction in per channel data rate (relative to the speeds available in the laser itself) that occurs in the insertion of code addressing. Hence optical CDMA for the video transmission application is meaningful when individual channel video bit rates can be significantly reduced and that can be done by compression of video data. In our work for compression of video image standard JPEG is implemented where a compression ratio of about 60 % is obtained without noticeable image degradation. Compared to the other existing techniques JPEG standard achieves higher compression ration with high S/N ratio. Here we demonstrated the auto and cross correlation properties of the codes. We have shown the implementation of bipolar Walsh coding in OCDMA system and their use in transmission of image/video.
