At this moment of technology, video still represents the most effective communication in the world. In recent study from Dr. Charles Hsu and Dr. Harold Szu, the video can be compressed highly using feature-preserving but lossy discrete wavelet transform (DWT) technology. The processes of DWT technology are to improve the video compression level, storage capacity, filtering, and restoration techniques. This technology would allow running real time video through radio with fairly quality performance due to their compression and computational complexity techniques. After the compression, the video can be stored and transmitted at 16kbps through any reliable media and still retain a reasonable video quality. Hsu and Szu have done serious simulations and successfully implemented in the brassboards. The main objective of this paper is to present how to transmit this highly compressed video to the users via FM radio link interactively by using special technique. This application can enable many radio users receive video through their radio receiver box. This application has more interested in developing countries where television transmission is hardly afforded for education, distance learning, telemedicine, low cost sports, one-way videoconference and entertainment broadcasting.
