In this paper, we consider scalable video multicast to LTE-A user groups. We focus on the problem in accommodating the varying channel conditions amongst group members to adaptively select modulation schemes that meet the desired QoS objectives for the bitstream layers. We envision a fair provisioning of the base layer to ensure baseline quality to all users and an opportunistic provisioning of the enhancement layers to maximize system utility. We show NP-Hardness in the formulation of the base… CONTINUE READING
