Abstract

Scalable video coding provides an efficient solution when video is delivered through heterogeneous networks to terminals with different computational and display capabilities. Scalable video bitstream can easily be adapted to required spatio-temporal resolution and quality, according to the transmission requirements. In this chapter, the Wavelet-based Scalable Video Coding (W-SVC) architecture is presented in detail. The W-SVC framework is based on wavelet based motion compensated approaches. The practical capabilities of the W-SVC are also demonstrated by using the error resilient transmission and surveillance applications. The experimental result shows that the W-SVC framework produces improved performance than existing method and provides full flexible architecture with respect to different application scenarios.
