An Improved Error Concealment Algorithm for Wireless Video Applications
This paper develops a new error concealment algorithm for the whole-frame losses in wireless video transmission based on H.264/AVC.At first,we propose a forward motion vector extrapolation algorithm based on variable-size block motion vector estimation to obtain the motion vector field of the loss frame without yielding the hole problems. Then, we partition the missing frame into several object regions by clustering the motion vectors, furthermore, we apply median filter to reconstruct the motion vectors for hole areas based on the reliabilities of neighboring motion vectors. Finally, all macroblocks in the lost frame are estimated by using the extrapolated motion vectors. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm provides better image quality than conventional methods both objectively and subjectively.
