Abstract

We study multicast of multi-view content in the video plus depth format to heterogeneous clients. We design a joint source-channel coding scheme based on view and rate embedded source coding and rateless channel coding. It comprises an optimization framework for joint view selection and source-channel rate allocation, and includes a fast method for separate optimization of the source and channel coding components, at a negligible performance loss wrt the joint solution. We demonstrate performance gains over a state-of-the-art method based on H.264/SVC, in the case of two client classes.
