The version 2 of the ITU recommendation H.263, better known as H.263+, includes a number of new mechanisms to improve coding efficiency and support various types of networks more efficiently. This paper provides an overview of the error resilience optional modes of H.263+ and describes the use of such modes in various network scenarios.
The quality of real-time audio and video information transmitted via today's Internet suffers severely from often significant packet losses. While this problem is well understood and solved for existing audio coding schemes, support from the video coding standards themselves is required for video streams. This paper presents the newly introduced error… (More)
