proposed a biased neighbor selection technique that can offer good performance in scalable video coding P2P streaming systems.
According to the concept of scalable video coding, a higher layer data can be decoded only all of its lower layer data are acquired before.
With scalable video coding, one important problem is how many layers each peer should acquire for playback.
By using the scalable video coding mechanism, the video is encoded into 10 streaming layers, and each streaming layer has a video rate of 30kbps.
Besides, with scalable video coding, the number of coding layers a peer acquired is adaptive to the network and peer capacity, and video playback quality specifies the average video quality a peer acquired.
With scalable video coding mechanism, there are two phenomenon should be considered.
Since true interoperability also requires standardization of media transport and signaling, Vidyo has been actively driving standards in these arenas as they pertain to scalable video coding for video conferencing.
While others were not ready with their own implementations at that time, Vidyo anticipates greater participation this year, as other industry members begin to bring their first generation of scalable video coding supported solutions to market.
The VidyoRouter[TM] is based on the company's patented Adaptive Video Layering architecture and leverages Scalable Video Coding (SVC)-based technology.
