The actual performance of video delivery over wireless networks is best captured through experimental studies over real testbed, which is crucial to uncover the technical problems and practical challenges of realizing the proposed video delivery techniques. Network Coding (NC) provides a paradigm shift to optimize the network resources for enhancing the video quality as a result of delivery over multi-hop wireless networks. In this paper, the authors propose a novel framework for evaluating the performance of NC-based video delivery over multi-hop wireless networks. Based on an experimental testbed implementation of inter-layer video coding and delivery, they propose a new generalized technique for multi-hop interlayer NC in enhancing video delivery quality.
