Multiple description coding (MDC) is an error-resilient source coding scheme that creates multiple bitstreams of approximately equal importance. The reconstructed signal based on any single bitstream has an acceptable quality. However, a higher quality reconstruction can be achieved with a larger number of bitstreams. We develop a multiple description video coding scheme based on a three-loop structure. We modify the discrete cosine transform structure to the matching pursuits framework and evaluate performance gain using maximum-likelihood (ML) enhancement when both descriptions are available. We find that ML enhancement works best for low motion sequences and results in gains of up to 1.3 dB in terms of average PSNR. Rate distortion performance is characterized. Performance comparison is made between our MDC scheme and single description coding (SDC) schemes over lossy channels, including two state Markov channels and Rayleigh fading channels. We find that MDC outperforms SDC in bursty slowly varying environments. In the case of Rayleigh fading channels, interleaving helps SDC close the gap and even outperform MDC depending on the amount of interleaving performed, at the expense of additional delay
