On Multiple Description Coding of Sources with Memory
Journal article, 2010
We propose a framework for multiple description coding (MDC) of sources with memory. A new source coding method for lossless transmission of correlated sources, power series quantization (PSQ), was recently suggested. PSQ uses a separate linear or non-linear predictor for each quantizer region, and has shown increased performance compared to several common quantization schemes for sources with memory. We propose multiple description PSQ as a special case within our framework. The suggested scheme is shown to increase performance compared with previous state-of-the-art MDC methods.
