We propose an analytical model to study the overall effectiveness of packet-level FEC in improving delay-constrained video transport over wired networks subject to random loss and delay. In particular, we provide an exact analysis for the effect of the additional delay resulting from FEC coding/ decoding on end-to-end video transmission quality. The effects of several key system parameters on the effectiveness of FEC are investigated and the tradeoffs associated with choice of these parameters… CONTINUE READING
