Channel--Matched Hierarchical Table--Lookup Vector Quantization for Transmission of Video Over Wireless Channels
MetadataShow full item record
We propose a channel-matched hierarchical table-lookup vector quantizer (CM-HTVQ) which provides some robustness against the channel noise. We use a finite-state channel to model slow fading channels and propose an adaptive coding scheme to transmit a source over wireless channels. The performance of CM-HTVQ is in general slightly inferior to that of, channel-optimized vector quantizer (COVQ) (the performances coincide at some cases); however, the encoder complexity of CM-HTVQ is much less than the encoder complexity of COVQ.
