Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

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
