Paper Abstract

This paper presents an efficient approach for supporting wireless video full interactive services. One of the main goals of wireless video multicast services is to provide priority including dedicated bandwidth, controlled jitter (required by some real-time and interactive traffic), and improved loss characteristics. The proposed method is based on storing multiple differently encoded versions of the normal/interactive video streams at the server. The corresponding video streams are obtained by encoding the original uncompressed video file as a sequence of I-P(I) frames and I-P(M) frames using different GOP (Group Of Pictures) pattern. Mechanisms for controlling the normal/interactive request are also presented and their effectiveness is assessed through extensive simulations. Wireless normal/interactive video services are supported with considerably reduced additional delay and acceptable visual quality at the wireless client-end.
