Flexible Broadcasting of Scalable Video Streams to Heterogeneous Mobile Devices

The authors study the scalable video broadcasting problem in mobile TV broadcast networks, where each TV channel is encoded into a scalable video stream with multiple layers, and several TV channels are concurrently broadcast over a shared air medium to many mobile devices with heterogeneous resources. The goal is to encapsulate and broadcast video streams encoded in scalable manner to enable heterogeneous mobile devices to render the most appropriate video substreams while achieving high energy saving and low channel switching delay. The appropriate streams depend on the device capability and the target energy consumption level.
