Executive Summary

The most recent literature indicates Multiple Description Coding (MDC) as a promising coding approach to handle the problem of video transmission over unreliable networks with different quality and bandwidth constraints. Furthermore, following recent commercial availability of auto stereoscopic 3D displays that allow 3D visual data to be viewed without the use of special headgear or glasses, it is anticipated that the applications of 3D video will increase rapidly in the near future. Moving from the concept of spatial MDC, in this paper the authors introduce some efficient algorithms to obtain 3D substreams that also exploit some form of scalability.
