Modelling and Implementation of Network Coding for Video
Full Text (PDF, 1691KB), PP.1-10
In this paper, we investigate Network Coding for Video (NCV) which we apply for video streaming over wireless networks. NCV provides a basis for network coding. We use NCV algorithm to increase throughput and video quality. When designing NCV algorithm, we take the deadline as well as the decodability of the video packet at the receiver. In network coding, different flows of video packets are packed into a single packet at intermediate nodes and forwarded to other nodes over wireless networks. There are many problems that occur during transmission on the wireless channel. Network coding plays an important role in dealing with these problems. We observe the benefits of network coding for throughput increase thanks to applying broadcast operations on wireless networks. The aim of this study is to implement NCV algorithm using C programming language which takes the output of the H.264 video codec generating the video packets. In our experiments, we investigated improvements in terms of video quality and throughput at different scenarios.
