Paper Abstract

Error protection and concealment of motion vectors are of prime concern when video is transmitted over variable-bandwidth error-prone channels, such as wireless channels. In this paper, we investigate the influence of corrupted motion vectors in video coding based on motion-compensated temporal filtering, and develop various error protection and concealment mechanisms for this class of codecs. The experimental results show that our proposed motion vector coding technique significantly increases the robustness against transmission errors and generates performance gains of up to 7 dB compared with the original coding technique at the cost of less than 4% in terms of rate. It is also shown that our proposed spatial error-concealment mechanism leads to additional performance gains of up to 4 dB.
