This paper is an enquiry into the interaction between multiple description coding (MDC) and network routing. We are mainly concerned with rate-distortion optimized network flow of a multiple description (MD) source from multiple servers to multiple sinks. We aim at maximizing a collective metric of the quality of source reconstruction at all sinks, by optimally routing the MD source streams from the server nodes to the sinks. This problem turns out to be very different from conventional maximum… CONTINUE READING
