An Adaptive Cross-layer Mapping Algorithm for Multiview Video Coding over IEEE 802.11e WLANs
In this paper, the authors propose an Adaptive Cross-layer Mapping algorithm for Multi view Video Coding (ACMMVC) over IEEE 802.11e Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). To support the varying Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements of emerging applications, four Access Categories (ACs) have been defined in the IEEE 802.11e standard. Each AC has a different transmission priority, which implies the higher the transmission priority, the better the opportunity to transmit. In order to improve the transmission of video data over IP networks, the Multi-view Video Coding (MVC) extension of the H.264/MPEG 4 AVC standard has been introduced. The MVC adopts the layered video scheme.
