Abstract

The Quality Layers concept is proposed and adopted in the JSVM in order to ensure an optimal adaptation in a rate-distortion sense [1]. In this paper it is extended to multi-view case for scalable coding of multi-view videos (MVV). Rate-visual-distortion optimized rate allocation among the views is necessary for efficient transport of multi-view data over the Internet. This paper addresses a standard compatible approach to solve the problem. Experimental results are presented that demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method for several multi-view videos.
