Title Error resilient multiple description compression of vector graphics
Abstract This research is motivated by the needs of robust streaming of vector graphics contents over the Internet, wireless and other lossy networks. We present a multiple description coding (MDC) technique for error resilient compression and transmission of 2D vector graphics contents. An object is coded into two or more so-called co-descriptors, which are transmitted in separate data packets and generally via different network routes from a server to a client. Each co-descriptor can autonomously provide an approximation of the input object, and it can collaborate with other co-descriptors, if also available at the decoder, to refine the approximation.
