R2NC: Redundant and Random Network Coding for Robust H.264/SVC Transmission
In this paper, the authors are interested in improving the performance of constructive network coding schemes for video transmission over packet lossy networks. A novel unequal packet loss protection scheme R2NC based on low-triangular global coding matrix with ladder-shaped partition will be presented, which combines redundant and random network coding for robust H.264/SVC video transmission. The error-correcting capabilities of redundant network coding make their scheme resilient to loss. The implementation of random network coding at the intermediate nodes with multiple input links can reduce the cost of network bandwidth, thus reducing the end-to-end delay for video transmission.
