While the Scalable Video Coding (SVC) extension of Advanced Video Coding (AVC) has proven to be a useful tool for the advanced delivery of video content, it has not yet found major adoption in practice. This paper introduces the concept of SVC tunneling developed in the EU FP7 ALICANTE project, which attempts to provide device-independent access to media resources at reduced network load. For SVC tunneling, video transcoding is performed at the ingress/egress points of the network, which may impact the video quality. We show that the quality impact of these transcoding steps for a transcoding chain from MPEG-2 to SVC and back to MPEG-2 accumulates to a PSNR reduction of up to 2.1 dB for transcoding at fixed target bitrates. We also discuss research challenges and open issues in SVC tunneling.}, doi = {10.1109/ICME.2011.6012239}, keywords = {Content-aware networking; scalable video coding; quality of service; SVC tunneling; transcoding; multimedia distribution}, language = {EN}, location = {Barcelona, Spain}, pdf = {http://www-itec.uni-klu.ac.at/bib/files/WoMAN2011_paper_209.pdf}, talkdate = {2011.07.11}, talktype = {registered} }
