Content-Aware Distortion-Fair Video Streaming in Networks
Internet is experiencing an explosive growth of video traffic. Given the limited network bandwidth resources, how to provide Internet users with good video playback quality is a key problem. For video clips competing bandwidth, the authors propose an approach of Content-Aware distortion-Fair (CAF) video delivery scheme, which is assumed to be aware of the characteristics of video frames and ensures max-min distortion fair sharing among video flows. Different from bandwidth fair sharing, CAF targets video playback quality fairness for the reason that users care about video quality rather than bandwidth.
