Providing quality-of-service (QoS) to video delivery in wireless networks has attracted intensive research over the years. A fundamental problem in this area is how to map QoS criterion at different layers and optimize QoS across the layers. In this paper, we investigate this problem and present a cross-layer mapping architecture for video transmission in wireless networks. There are several important building blocks in this architecture, among others, QoS interaction between video coding and transmission modules, QoS mapping mechanism, video quality adaptation, and source rate constraint derivation. We describe the design and algorithms for each building block, which either builds upon or extend the state-of-the-art algorithms that were developed without much considerations of other layers. Finally, we use simulation results to demonstrate the performance of the proposed architecture for progressive fine granularity scalability video transmission over time-varying and nonstationary wireless channel.
