This paper introduces a cross-layer design framework for robust and efficient video multicasting over IEEE 802.16 (also known as WiMAX) networks in metropolitan areas. In the framework, multiple description coding (MDC) on scalable video bitstreams at the source for achieving multiresolution robustness is jointly designed with superposition coding (SCM) on multicast signals at the channel to overcome multiuser channel diversity in wireless multicast. The coded multicast signals under the… CONTINUE READING
