  author={Rohan Gupta and Akshay Pulipaka and Patrick Seeling and Lina J. Karam and Martin Reisslein},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting},
The scalable video coding (SVC) extension of the H.264/AVC video coding standard provides two mechanisms, namely coarse grain scalability (CGS) and medium grain scalability (MGS), for quality scalable video encoding, which varies the fidelity (signal-to-noise ratio) of the encoded video stream. As H.264/AVC and its SVC extension are expected to become widely adopted for the network transport of video, it is important to thoroughly study their network traffic characteristics, including the bit… CONTINUE READING
