H261 and H263-based Programable Video Transceivers

Cherriman, P J and Hanzo, L (1996) H261 and H263-based Programable Video Transceivers At ICCS'96/ISPAC'96, Singapore. 25 - 29 Nov 1996. , pp. 1369-1373.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The video quality versus bitrate performance of the H.261 and H.268codecs is characterised and a bitrate control algorithm is proposed in order to maintain a selectable near-constant video bitrate. The source codecs are operated at four different bitrates, which result in a constant symbol rate after error correction coding. This system constellation allowed us to maintain a constant video user bandwidth requirement, but benefit from improving channel conditions in terms of better video quality, when invoking more bandwidth efficient modem schemes ranging from 1 to 6 bits per symbol.
