Real Time Forward Error Correction For Video Transmission

These (n, k) values would work particularly well in the context of the H.263 low bit rate video coding standard currently recommended by the International Telecommunications Union, because the H.263 standard Close ScienceDirectJournalsBooksRegisterSign inSign in using your ScienceDirect credentialsUsernamePasswordRemember meForgotten username or password?Sign in via your institutionOpenAthens loginOther institution loginHelpJournalsBooksRegisterSign inHelpcloseSign in using your ScienceDirect credentialsUsernamePasswordRemember meForgotten username or password?Sign in via In order to conserve bandwidth, the encoder of the present invention then preferably strips payload blocks of any padded zeros before passing the blocks to the packetizer for packetizing and transmission. The present invention does not increase the packet rate and may perform its function without introducing significant delay into the transmission process. weblink

FIG. 1 illustrates by way of example an encoder 10 operating in accordance with the present invention. In the proposed approach, the optimal FEC configuration is computed in advance on a frame-by-frame basis over a series of predicted video frames, thereby yielding a significant reduction in the data He had chaired the Department of Electrical Engineering from 2002 to 2005 and served as the Director of the Computer and Network Center, NCKU from 2005 to 2011. In a packet switched network, a message to be sent is divided into blocks, or data packets, of fixed or variable length.

An apparatus for encoding a sequence of payload blocks in a telecommunications network to enable recovery of lost payload blocks, said apparatus comprising, in combination:a computer processor; a memory; a first In particular, the RS block coder operates symbol-wise (for example, byte-wise) on the payload symbols to create corresponding bits of the FEC symbols. After generating redundancy blocks FEC0 and FEC1, the encoder preferably purges payload blocks PL[1], PL[2] and PL[3], writes copies of the next three payload blocks, PL[4], PL[5] and PL[6], to memory, Generated Mon, 24 Oct 2016 14:31:16 GMT by s_ac4 (squid/3.5.20) ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: Connection

Rather, depending on the packet switching protocol in use, these packets may arrive in sequential order or out of order. Related book content No articles found.

These as well as other advantages of the present invention will become apparent to those of ordinary skill in the art by reading the following detailed description, with appropriate reference to In this way, the receiving end may readily recover a lost packet PL[k] from one of the n subsequent packets PL[k+1] . . . At the same time, however, in order to facilitate recovery of lost packets (i.e., decoding) at the receiving end, the encoder preferably concatenates with each payload block an indication of how This request and retransmission system is generally accurate.

A method as claimed in claim 10, wherein said payload blocks cooperatively represent a real-time media signal selected from the group consisting of an audio signal and a video signal. 12. Unfortunately, however, the addition of redundant parity packets gives rise to increased complexity and delays in transmission. Your cache administrator is webmaster. According to a preferred embodiment of the present invention, as a sequence of payload blocks is being transmitted, every k payload blocks in the sequence are fed through a block coder

If exactly one of nine sequential packets is then lost in transmission, the lost payload can be recovered as described above.

In the example shown, packet P[3] (and therefore payload block PL[3]) is missing. Beneficially, the invention accomplishes this function without increasing packet rate and without substantially increasing the data rate of transmission beyond the single FEC block (and trivial amount of other overhead) added A parity packet destined for the same receiving end as an adjacent payload packet would have a header almost identical to the header of the payload packet. check over here However, it will be appreciated that the present invention is not limited to sequential packet transmission.

It will be understood, however, that changes and modifications may be made to the invention without deviating from the spirit and scope of the invention, as defined by the following claims. For example, provided that 8 bytes are protected with 3 parity bytes (a total of 11 bytes) any three bytes can be lost and the original 8 bytes may still be Please try the request again.

The encoder will then derive the necessary redundancy blocks FEC0 and FEC1, each of which, in this example, will also be 24 bits long.

While an encoder or decoder operating in accordance with the present invention may take any of a variety of forms (such as hardware, software or firmware), both the encoding and decoding Please note that Internet Explorer version 8.x will not be supported as of January 1, 2016. and Ph.D. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT The present invention provides an improved system for communicating substantially real time media signals through an unreliable digital transmission channel.

Please refer to this blog post for more information. Of course, the choice of block coder, including the choice of the (n, k) values used by the coder, may depend on a number of factors, including the efficiency required for An encoder at the sending end derives p redundancy blocks from each group of a k payload blocks and concatenates the redundancy blocks, respectively, with payload blocks in the next group this content For more information, visit the cookies page.Copyright © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

At the same time, as higher values of k are used, the decoder will have to wait longer to recover lost packets, which, as explained above, would be undesirable for transmission and Ph.D. degrees from Electrical Engineering Department of National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, in 1984 and 1986, respectively. A preferred embodiment of the present invention has been illustrated and described.

However, at times, multiple sequential packets in a row may be lost. The copyright owner has no objection to the facsimile reproduction by anyone of the patent disclosure, as it appears in the Patent and Trademark Office patent files or records, but otherwise Additionally, this method will not affect the packet rate or routing rate, since, as noted above, the routing rate is concerned principally with the header information in a given packet, rather Skip to MainContent IEEE.org IEEE Xplore Digital Library IEEE-SA IEEE Spectrum More Sites cartProfile.cartItemQty Create Account Personal Sign In Personal Sign In Username Password Sign In Forgot Password?

Provided with payload blocks of various lengths, the invention contemplates padding the shorter payload blocks in each group of k payload blocks (every three payload blocks in the above example) with
