Distribute the Video Frame Pixels over the Streaming Video Sequence as Sub-Frames
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Real-time video streaming over wireless channel has become an important issue due to the limited bandwidth that is unable to handle the flow of information of the video frames. The characteristics of wireless networks in terms of the available bandwidth, frame delay, and frame losses cannot be known in advance. As the effect of that, the user may notice a frozen picture in the mobile screen. In this work, we propose a technique to prevent freezing frames in the mobile devices based on spatial and temporal locality for the video stream, by splitting the video frame into four sub-frames and combining them with another sub-frames from different sequence positions in the streaming video. In case of frames losses, there is still a possibility that one fourth (one sub-frame) of the frame will be received by the mobile device. The received sub-frames will be reconstructed based on the surrounding pixels. The rate adaptation mechanism will be also highlighted in this work, by skipping sub-frames from the video frames. We show that the server can skip up to 75% of the frame’s pixels and the receiving pixels (sub-frames) can be reconstructed to acceptable quality in the mobile device.
