The primary goal of clustering in wireless sensor networks is to efficiently manage the energy consumption of among the sensory nodes using multi-hop communication with particular cluster. This proposed approach will reconsider the concept of leveling, sectoring and adaptive clustering for video traffic. Partitioning the entire network into clusters would manage the video traffic required for the data dissemination to the base station using multi-hop communication. Making both the cluster head selection and cluster size dynamic has been the central idea of this routing protocol. In this paper the simulation for transmission of videos over wireless networks is performed in MATLAB and the results are analyzed on the basis evaluation of configuring parameters such as PSNR, Network Life time, and Average Power Consumption. The Proposed mechanism improved the PSNR, Network Life time, and Average Power Consumption.
