Abstract

The use of forward error correction (FEC) coding is often proposed to combat the effects of network packet losses for error-resilient video transmission on packet-switched networks. On the other hand, path diversity has recently been proposed to improve network transport for both singledescription (SD) and multiple-description (MD) coded video. In this work we model and analyze an SD coded video transmission system employing packet-level FEC in combination with path diversity. In particular, we provide a precise analytical approach to evaluating the efficacy of path diversity in reducing the burstiness of network packet-loss processes. We use this approach to quantitatively demonstrate the advantages of path diversity in improving end-to-end video transport performance using packet-level FEC.
