Large-scale distributed video surveillance systems typically consists of many video sources distributed over a wide area, transmitting live video streams to a central location for processing and monitoring. The target of this paper to bring down the overall system cost, increasing deployability, scalability, and performance is to propose a new architecture(More)
Current video-surveillance systems typically consist of many video sources distributed over a wide area, transmitting live video streams to a central location for processing and monitoring. The target of this paper is to present an experience of implementation of a large-scale video-surveillance system based on a wireless mesh network infrastructure,(More)
Adaptive rate video encoding is required to maximize efficiency when wireless links are involved in the communication. In fact, wireless channels are characterized by high, time-varying bit error rates. To cope efficiently with this problem adaptive forward error correction schemes have been proposed. These schemes introduce an amount of redundancy(More)

E-learning is a general term used to refer to computer-enhanced learning. The most notable advantages of e-learning are flexibility, convenience and the ability to work at our own pace. Other advantages include the ability to communicate with fellow classmates from around the country. However, a common problem of usual e-learning approach is the lack of(More)
Multipoint distribution of real-time video constitutes a challenge for the research in the current Internet, mainly due to the poor dissemination of IP Multicast. The target of this paper is to define a low-cost flexible multipoint communication platform for the users of video sessions, which scales for a large number of communication groups with a small(More)
