A Robust Resolution-Enhancement Scheme for Video Transmission over Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks

Abstract : Historically, Error-Resilient (ER) video transmission and Super-Resolution (SR) image reconstruction techniques have evolved separately. In this paper, we propose a coordinated application of ER and SR to enhance the resolution of image transmitted over mobile ad-hoc networks. In order to combat error propagation, a flexible multiple description coding method based on shifted 3-D SPIHT (3-D Set Partitioning In Hierarchical Trees) algorithm is presented to generate variable independent descriptions (substreams) according to the network condition. And then, a novel unequal error protection strategy based on the priority level is provided to assign a higher level of error protection to more important parts of bitstream. Moreover, a robust SR algorithm is proposed in the presence of different kinds of packet loss rate to enhance the image resolution. Experimental results indicate that the proposed robust resolution-enhancement scheme outperforms the competing methods from the aspects of PSNR (Peak-Signal-to-Noise Ratio) and visual quality under different packet loss rates.
