Joint Source-Channel Coding, as a basic principle of designing
efficient and error-resilient communication systems, has a wide
range of applications. Basically everywhere when Shannon's
information separation theorem fails (which is: most cases), JSCC
can be applied to obtain performance gains, especially with
applications where there is a strict delay requirement (for
example, videophone, video conferencing) and wireless channels.
Here below we show two animated movies generated by our preliminary
JSCC system hardware platform (designed and implemented by former
student member Mike Palac).
The final system will use color cameras, and much higher frame
rates, of course, and also you would be able to view a comparision
output generated by a non-jscc-optimized wireless video transmission
system. Please come back often to check for progress.
