Real-Time VBR Video Teleconferencing

  • George Kesidis

Abstract

In this chapter, resource management and provisioning for VBR services will be described. The focus will be video teleconferencing (VT) services that are MPEG encoded. Unlike prerecorded video, VT is a real-time service and, consequently, more sensitive to end-to-end cell delay. Also, MPEG traces of VT do not contain B-frames. VT connections will also have substantially smaller bandwidth and playback buffer capacity requirements than prerecorded video connections considered in Chapter 6.
