Convergence Behaviour of Iteratively Decoded Short Block-Codes in H.264 Joint Source and Channel Decoding
There has been an increasing interest in multimedia transmission over wireless channels. However, in wireless systems the data rate is limited by both the available bandwidth and transmission power. Various data compression standards have been developed to transmit multimedia signals over band-limited channels. However, the removal of redundancy renders the compressed data stream more vulnerable to transmission errors. Therefore, simultaneously maintaining a high compression efficiency as well as a high integrity, when communicating over heterogeneous communication networks is of paramount importance.
