This paper addresses the important issues of error control for video transmission over 3G, considering the fact that wireless video delivery faces the huge challenge of the high error rate and time variability in wireless channel. This paper proposes a real world statistics based event-trigger bit error rate (BER) model, which can describe and handle the time-varying wireless channel error characteristics better. Moreover, a recurrent neural network is employed to decide the state transfer as a mechanism. Simulation results and comparisons demonstrate effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed method in term of visual performance and transmission efficiency over a variety of wireless channel conditions.
