Transmission of variable bit-rate encoded video over either constant or variable bit-rate communication channels imposes restrictions on the shape of the bit generation process in the encoder. In order that these restrictions can be met, a coder-network interface system has be to included consisting of a buffer and a coder controller device. In this paper we show how the availability of appropriate statistical models of the behavior of the source-coder system allows the formalization of the problem of the controller design as a stochastic optimal control problem, which can be solved by direct application of dynamic programming algorithms. Focusing the problem in the adaptation of a hybrid DCT coder to a fixed bit-rate channel, examples of the three stages of the process (source-coder modelization, problem definition, and optimal policy computation) are provided.
