The European STREP Project SUIT involves the development of a multiple description scalable video codec for the transmission of video content over DVB-T/H and WiMAX channels. In this paper, we elaborate on the architectural design choices for such a multiple description transmission system, which utilizes H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC). We follow a(More)
In video coding systems using adaptive arithmetic coding to compress texture information, the employed symbol probability models need to be retrained every time the coding process moves into an area with different texture. To avoid this inefficiency , we propose to replace the probability models used in the original coder with multiple switchable sets of(More)
While many recent international video coding standards, especially H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, leverage block size adaptivity in motion estimation, the rate-distortion boundary can be pushed further by allowing even more freedom in the partitioning process of inter pictures. Adaptive-shape partitioning, which allows blocks to be partitioned along a straight line that(More)
