AN ENHANCED SMOOTHING SCHEME FOR MPEG VIDEO STREAMS TRANSMISSION

Joelson Tadeu Vendramin, Keiko Veronica Ono Fonseca

Abstract

Compressed video transmission over UDP/IP-based networks leads some challenging studies. One of them refers to the problem of minimizing the burstiness of video compressed traffic as it leads to poor network bandwidth utilization. Video smoothing has been proposed as one solution to this problem. This paper presents a smoothing algorithm to reduce such burstiness. The algorithm can bring good results in terms of peak bandwidth reduction while keeps a simple implementation if compared to other smoothing schemes.
