Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6656)


High quality multimedia contents can distribute in a flexible, efficient and personalized way through dynamic and heterogeneous environments in Future Internet. Scalable Video Coding (SVC) and Multiple Description Coding (MDC) fulfill these objective thorough P2P distribution techniques. This chapter discusses the SVC and MDC techniques along with the real experience of the authors of SVC/MDC over P2P networks and emphasizes their pertinence in Future Media Internet initiatives in order to decipher potential challenges.
