Forward Error Correction applied to JPEG-XS codestreams

  title={Forward Error Correction applied to JPEG-XS codestreams},
  author={Antoine Legrand and Benoit M. Macq and Christophe De Vleeschouwer},
JPEG-XS offers low complexity image compression for applications with constrained but reasonable bit-rate, and low latency. Our paper explores the deployment of JPEG-XS on lossy packet networks. To preserve low latency, Forward Error Correction (FEC) is envi-sioned as the protection mechanism of interest. Although the JPEG-XS codestream is not scalable in essence, we observe that the loss of a codestream fraction impacts the decoded image quality differently, depending on whether this…

Error-resilient image and video transmission over the Internet using unequal error protection

Simulation results show that the proposed bit-plane-wise unequal error protection algorithm is simple, fast and robust in hostile network conditions and, therefore, can provide reasonable picture quality for video applications under varying network conditions.

Error Protection and Interleaving for Wireless Transmission of JPEG 2000 Images and Video

A dichotomic technique for searching the optimal UEP strategy, which lends ideas from existing algorithms, is presented, and a method of virtual interleaving is adopted to be used for the transmission of high bit rate streams over packet loss channels, guaranteeing a large PSNR advantage over a plain transmission scheme.

Unequal loss protection: graceful degradation of image quality over packet erasure channels through forward error correction

It is found that when optimizing for an exponential packet loss model with a mean loss rate of 20% and using a total rate of 0.2 bits per pixel on the Lenna image, good image quality can be obtained even when 40% of transmitted packets are lost.

The results reported in this paper provide guidance concerning the selection of JPEG2000 coding parameters and appropriate combinations of RS (Reed-Solomon) codes, for typical wireless bit error rates in the range 10/sup -4/ to 10/Sup -3/.

Joint source-chanel decoding of JPEG2000 images with unequal loss protection

This paper presents a method for joint decoding of JPEG2000 bitstreams and Reed-Solomon codes in the context of unequal loss protection, and can improve the PSNR of decoded images by over 10 dB in some cases.

Joint Decoding of Unequally Protected JPEG2000 Bitstreams and Reed-Solomon Codes

This paper proposes the use of smaller codeblocks and transmission of a relatively small amount of side information with high reliability as two approaches to accelerate the joint decoding process.

JPEG 2000 backward compatible error protection with Reed-Solomon codes

In this paper, a backward compatible header error protection mechanism is described. It consists of the addition of a dedicated marker segment to a JPEG 2000 codestream, that will contain the error

The JPEG2000 still image coding system: an overview

It is interesting to note that JPEG2000 is being designed to address the requirements of a diversity of applications, e.g. Internet, color facsimile, printing, scanning, digital photography, remote sensing, mobile applications, medical imagery, digital library and E-commerce.

JPEG XS—A New Standard for Visually Lossless Low-Latency Lightweight Image Coding

The key features of this new standard and the profiles and formats that have been defined so far for the various applications are detailed and a technical description of the core coding system is given.

Enhanced error concealment with mode selection

The overall performance of the proposed EC method is shown to offer significant gains compared to that of the JM decoder for a wide range of natural and animation image sequences without any considerable increase in complexity.
