Scalable Video Streaming in Wireless Mesh Networks for Education
Liu, Yan; Wang, Xinheng; Zhao, Liqiang
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v9 n1 p1-20 2011
In this paper, a video streaming system for education based on a wireless mesh network is proposed. A wireless mesh network is a self-organizing, self-managing and reliable intelligent network, which allows educators to deploy a network quickly. Video streaming plays an important role in this system for multimedia data transmission. This new system adopts the scalable video coding scheme that enables the video server to deliver layered videos to different user groups. In addition, a quality control method was developed to automatically change the output data rate based on network conditions. Real implementation test results show the proposed methods are effective.
