Abstract

Even though the latest video compression techniques such as High Efficiency Video coding (HEVC) have succeeded in significantly alleviating the bandwidth consumption during high resolution video transmission, they have become severely susceptible to transmission errors. Overcoming the resulting temporal impact of the transmission errors on the decoded video requires efficient error resilient schemes that can introduce robustness features to the coded video in order to mitigate the negative impact on the viewer. To this end, this paper proposes a rate-controlled error resilient bit allocation scheme, together with an encoding parameter selection process, to adaptively determine the most robust video coding parameters and the decoder error concealment operations during the encoding itself. Consequently, the proposed method has demonstrated 0.48dB-0.62dB PSNR gain over the state-of-the art methods at the same bit rate.
