Abstract

This paper describes a methodology for evaluating the rate-distortion behavior of combined source and channel coding schemes with particular application to images. We demonstrate use of the operational rate-distortion function to obtain the optimum tradeoff between source coding accuracy and channel error protection under the constraint of a fixed transmission bandwidth. Furthermore, we develop information-theoretic bounds on performance and demonstrate that our combined source-channel coding methodology results in rate-distortion performance which closely approaches these theoretical limits. We concentrate specifically on a wavelet-based subband source coding scheme and the use of binary rate-compatible punctured convolutional (RCPC) codes for transmission over the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel.
