Support for Digital VCR functionality over Network for H.264/AVC

Conference/Workshop Paper


IEEE ICC2008 - Signal Processing for Communications Symposium


With the growing popularity of variable network technologies, it is highly desirable to enable effective and quick browsing of remote multimedia content. In this paper we present a method for quick access of remote video content as an initial step towards a full digital Video Cassette Recording functionality in multimedia streaming applications such as Video-On-Demand, video broadcasting and remote video editing.We propose a transcoding scheme for H.264/AVC video that fully utilizes the benefits of recently proposed SP- and SI-frames to facilitate user-friendly remote stream browsing and editing. The transcoding parameters can be adaptively changed and optimized to support different characteristics of H.264 video streams.
