||Optimal packet loss protection of progressively compressed 3D meshes
||We consider a state of the art system that uses layered source coding and forward error correction with Reed-
Solomon codes to efﬁciently transmit 3D meshes over lossy packet networks. Given a transmission bit budget, the
performance of this system can be optimized by determining how many layers should be sent, how each layer
should be packetized, and how many parity bits should be allocated to each layer such that the expected distortion
at the receiver is minimum. The previous solution for this optimization problem uses exhaustive search, which is not
feasible when the transmission bit budget is large. We propose instead an exact algorithm that solves this optimization
problem in linear time and space. We illustrate the advantages of our approach by providing experimental results
for the CPM (Compressed Progressive Meshes) mesh compression technique.
