Transport of live video requires a robust backbone as live video decoders are subject to dropouts and buffer starvation.
A short duration packet loss will many times cause a decoder to go black for many seconds as it reacquires the stream
and clock. IP networks due to their connectionless approach and support for variable length packets, inherently display
packet delivery variability. These characteristics most typically include packet loss, packet delay variation, and packets
being delivered out of order.
Deep Packet Recovery (DPR) techniques provide correction to IP network induced errors and issues. DPR can provide a
much broader and stronger protection than traditional Forward Error Correction techniques enabling transport of live
video across severely impaired networks.
