FSVC: A New Fully Scalable Video Codec
This work describes FSVC (Fully Scalable Video Codec), a scalable video compression system which is able to generate temporal-, spatial- and quality-scalable video streams. FSVC is very suitable for video-on-demand applications where a single version of the compressed video sequence is used. A video server can provide video streams to several clients with different visualization and band-width requirements using a single copy of the stream which is organized as a set of packets (as in Motion JPEG 2000). The server is able to accommodate to a large variety of clients just selecting which packets will be transmitted. The simplicity of this transcoding operation makes possible a low-power server to provide service to a large number of clients.
