This paper presents a forward error correction technique that can be applied to protect JPEG2000 streams during their transmission over wireless channels with both sparse and packet error statistics. To this aim, we adopt the tools of the JPEG2000 Wireless (JPWL) standard, by introducing a method for Unequal Error Protection (UEP) and a virtual interleaving technique of the stream. All these techniques are introduced while keeping a complete backward-compatibility with the existing standard.
