Executive Summary

The authors present novel algorithms for adaptive GOP size control in distributed Wyner-Ziv video coding, where an H.264 video codec is used for intracoding of key frames. The proposed algorithms rely on theoretical calculations to estimate the bit rate necessary for the successful decoding of Wyner-Ziv frames without the need for a feedback channel, which makes the system suitable for broadcasting applications. Additionally, in regions where H.264 intracoding outperforms Wyner-Ziv coding, the system automatically switches to intracoding mode in order to improve the overall performance.
