With the deployment of 2.5G/3G cellular network infrastructure and large number of camera equipped cell phones, the demand for video enabled applications are high. However, for an uplink wireless channel, both the bandwidth and battery energy capability are limited in a mobile phone for the video communication. These technical problems need to be effectively addressed before the practical and affordable video applications can be made available to consumers. In this paper we investigate the energy efficient video communication solution through joint video summarization and transmission adaptation over a slow fading channel. Coding and modulation schemes, as well as packet transmission strategy are optimized and adapted to the unique packet arrival and delay characteristics of the video summaries. Operational energy efficiency -- summary distortion performance is characterized under an optimal summarization setting.
