Design of Efficient Key Video Frame Protection Scheme for Multimedia Internet of Things (IoT) in Converged 5G Network


To guarantee the quality of video data into fast-responding transmission and high resolution output video using cost effective video processing is desirable in many services including Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The goal of this study is to develop a transmission method to improve a quality of service (QoS) to support for various multimedia contents with high quality on 5 generation (5G) convergence network. The main motivation is based on video feature and dependency between frames and blocks in coding structure. First, we investigate the existing methods and analyze them into some classes. From the analyzed result, we propose a priority-based key frame protection method for improving QoS of in 5G convergence network.
