This paper presents an adaptation of peer-to-peer diffusion strategies of video over mobile links based on the use of multiple description coding. The system architecture, including the used overlay algorithm (the unstructured GIA algorithm) and video coding with multiple description coding (MDC), are presented as well as their interest in this context.(More)
This paper describes a solution for on-the-fly adapting the parameters of a video surveillance streams to system varying conditions, both in terms of data to be transmitted (number of streams to be sent) and of transmission conditions (quality of the available wireless link). This solution has been inserted in the system architecture of the EUREKA CELTIC(More)
We consider in this paper the problem of blind frame synchronization of systems using Reed-Solomon (RS) codes and other related families. We present first of all three techniques of blind frame synchronization based on the non-binary parity check matrix of RS codes. While the first two techniques involve the calculation of hard and soft values of the(More)
—In this paper, packet-level coding is considered in the framework of H.264/AVC video transmission. Two distinct solutions are proposed and compared in different realistic communication scenarios. The first is based on classical Reed-Solomon (RS) codes applied at the RTP layer, while the second on modern LDPC codes implemented at the UDP-Lite layer. An(More)
In this paper, we derive an asymptotic analysis and optimization of coded CPM systems using both unstructured and protograph-based LDPC codes ensembles. First, we present a simple yet effective approach to design unstructured LDPC codes : by inserting partial interleavers between LDPC and CPM, and allowing degree-1 and degree-2 variable nodes in a(More)
In this paper, we propose an extrinsic distortion-based source-channel allocation for JPWL transcoding systems. The distortion based approach is possible thanks to the extrinsic distortion estimation using information contained in the compressed bitstream. The proposed estimation method gives a coarse grain estimator of the true distortion, but keeping the(More)
Turbo codes are well known error-correcting codes used in many communication standards. However, they suffer from error floors. Recently, a method - denoted as the flip and check algorithm - that lowers the error floor of turbo codes was proposed. This method relies on the identification of the least reliable bits during the turbo decoding process. Gains of(More)
This article addresses the error floor reduction of double-binary turbo codes. The proposed approach is an extension of a low complexity method originally proposed for decoding binary turbo codes. This method's interest is that it does not need to modify the turbo coding scheme as long as an error detection code is serially concatenated with the turbo code.(More)
