An error-resilient coding scheme is proposed for the transmission of images over unreliable channels. Forward error correction is used in conjunction with the error-resilient source coder for the protection of the compressed stream. Unlike almost all other robust coding schemes presented to date, the proposed scheme is able to decode portions of the bitstream even after the occurrence of uncorrectable errors. The resulting coder is shown to be very efficient for image transmission over noisy channels.
