Paper Abstract

Broadcasting High Definition Television (HDTV) requires the transmission of an enormous amount of information within a highly restricted bandwidth. Adhering to the transmission constraints, channel errors are inevitable. This paper proposes error concealment techniques to remove subjective effects of transmission errors. Error concealment techniques for several data parameters transmitted for the compressed representation of HDTV are considered. Specifically, we address errors in motion vectors and DCT coefficients. The concealment techniques estimate the true value of the corrupted parameters by exploiting the spatial and temporal correlation within the image sequence. In general, the error concealment techniques are found to be extremely successful in removing degradations from the decoded image.
