Forward Error Correction (FEC) is a commonly adopted mechanism to mitigate packet loss/bit error during real-time communication. An adaptive, Fuzzy based FEC algorithm to provide a robust video quality metric for multimedia transmission over wireless networks has been proposed to optimize the redundancy of the generated code words from a Reed-Solomon encoder and to save the bandwidth of the network channel. The scheme is based on probability estimations derived from the data loss rates related…

Neural Network-based Video Quality via Adaptive FEC in Wireless Environment

This proposal strives to address QoS of video streaming for the cellular clients in Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) through adaptive FEC based on ANN, and shows that a video quality can be adaptable to the tuned optimal FEC codes from ANN via the packet loss probability of the wireless feedback environment.

The experimental results show that compared to the existing optimal packet-level FEC schemes in which the packet size is fixed, the proposed FEC-PSC scheme achieves a higher FEC efficiency (i.e. a better video quality with a lower bandwidth overhead).

An adaptive FEC scheme combined with packet size control is developed to simultaneously adjust the transport packet size and the degree of FEC redundancy based on the least bandwidth consumption strategy.


A frame-level FEC is added across packets at the application layer to define two analytical packet loss models and numerical results point out that the EGM-FEC model introduces a robust measure in estimating the perceived video quality in particular at higher packet loss rate and lower effect of packet correlation.
