Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We propose a system for wireless video multicast/broadcast to mobile handheld devices. We exploit the latest achievements in video coding (scalable 3D wavelet-based video coder) and in channel coding low-complexity rate compatible punctured PUM-based turbo codes). In the case of severe channel conditions, additional Reed-Solomon coding is applied across the packets. The scalable bitstream is split into multiple frames which are encoded separately. Fast rate optimal algorithms are used to determine suboptimal source channel symbol allocation. Experimental results given for different video sequences and channel conditions indicate good performance achieved at low complexity
