Quality of video transmitted over time-varying wireless channels relies heavily on the coordinated effort to cope with both channel and source variations dynamically. Given the priority of each source packet and the estimated channel condition, an adaptive protection scheme based on joint source-channel criteria is investigated via proactive forward error correction (FEC). With proactive FEC in Reed Solomon (RS)/Rate-compatible punctured convolutional (RCPC) codes, we study a practical algorithm to match the relative priority of source packets and instantaneous channel conditions. The channel condition is estimated to capture the long-term fading effect in terms of the averaged SNR over a preset window. Proactive protection is performed for each packet based on the joint source-channel criteria with special attention to the accuracy, time-scale match, and feedback delay of channel status estimation. The overall gain of the proposed protection mechanism is demonstrated in terms of the end-to-end wireless video performance.
