Abstract

This paper deals with the analysis of user perceived visual quality for mobile multimedia services. H.264/AVC is selected for low resolution video encoding, and 3G UMTS is considered for mobile data services. From subjective tests results, the combined impact of different service– and network–level parameters is inferred. As a result, different cross–layer adaptation alternatives are proposed to maximize the perceived quality level under different service conditions.
