This paper addresses the design of a model-based optimal control system for the real-time operation of low bit-rate coders. This control problem differs from its classical version, since the control system must decide for each video frame whether it can be coded or it must be skipped, apart from deciding the coding parameters for each coded video frame. The control policy, which specifies this decision process, is obtained as the solution of a stochastic dynamic programming problem. This problem corresponds to a formal specification of the rate control issue, which results from the previous obtainment of a stochastic model of the video coder behavior and a cost function whose minimization becomes the target of the regulation task. The approach is tested on a standard implementation of an H.263 coder.
