Packet-based fidelity scalability (PFS) is a desirable feature in many video coding or transmission applications. Any realization of PFS in a hybrid video coding approach, however, requires suitable concepts for controlling drift and for generating sufficiently small increments in bit rate in order to allow progressive refinements of perceptual quality relative to a given base layer quality. This paper addresses those problems in the context of the scalable video coding (SVC) extension of H.264… CONTINUE READING
