||Real-time unequal error protection of distortion-optimal progressive image transmission
||For optimal progressive transmission of an embedded
image code over a noisy channel, we consider an unequal
error protection strategy that minimizes the average of the expected
distortion over a set of intermediate rates. In contrast to
previous work, we find a near-optimal solution in real-time. For
a binary symmetric channel, two state-of-the-art source coders
(SPIHT and JPEG2000), and a rate-compatible punctured turbo
coder as a channel coder, we compare our solution to the strategy
that optimizes the end-to-end performance.
