The authors consider Distributed Video Coding (DVC) in presence of communication errors. Thereafter methods for exploiting the error-correcting capabilities of the LDPCA code in DVC are investigated. The proposed frame interpolation includes a symmetric flow constraint to the standard forward-backward frame interpolation scheme, which improves quality and handling of large motion. The three flows are combined in one solution. In addition they also exploit and investigate the internal error-correcting capabilities of the LDPCA code in order to make it more robust to errors. They investigate how to achieve this goal by only modifying the decoding. One of approaches is to use bit flipping; alternatively one can modify the parity check matrix of the LDPCA.
