Abstract

This paper proposes the use of an adaptive HEVC encoding framework for the wireless transmission of real-time emergency scenery video. The goal of the proposed approach is to adapt HEVC encoding methods and parameters so as to meet time-varying constraints on available bandwidth, video quality, and performance. We present an example in real-time video communications by requiring that the encoding rate can meet or exceed the source video frame-rate at a reasonable delay.
