Motivated by the Joint Source-Channel Decoding (JSCD) principle of exploiting the source redundancy, in this treatise we study the application of iterative source-channel decoding (ISCD) conceived for distributed video coding (DVC), where the video signal is modelled by our Iterative Horizontal-Vertical Scanline Model (IHVSM) relying on a first-order Markov process. The IHVSM technique is combined with the classic forward error correction (FEC) codecs employed in the state-of-the-art DVC systems for the sake of reducing the bit rate. Our simulation results show that up to 21.5% bit rate reductions are achieved by employing the proposed ISCD technique in a DVC scheme. Alternatively, a peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) gain of 2.2 dB is achieved at a bitrate of 4.5 Mbps when considering the Foreman sequence.
