Abstract

The development of universal systems for video streaming needs transmission strategies that exploit the characteristics of the transmission medium such as a wireless network. Scalable video coding allows partial decoding of the video for multiple demands or under severe reception conditions. Network coding increases the transmission rate and provides error control at network level. We propose a detection/deletion system for error reduction in presence of channel noise. We combine the error detection capabilities of the network code with erasure decoding and unequal error protection to improve the visual quality of the video.
