In this work, we propose a multiple description (MD) coding system for video streams. In particular, our scheme originates four descriptions from the spatially downsampled polyphase components of the original frames. Each description is compressed independently with the recent H264/AVC video coding standard, it is packetized and sent over an error prone network. In case of errors in one or more descriptions, appropriate concealing is applied at the receiver, before insertion of the corrected frames into the corresponding receiver frame buffers. We propose and compare different concealment solutions and a post processing stage to attenuate visual effects related to MD coding. We analyze the trade off between robustness to channel errors and coding efficiency, comparing the proposed technique with single description (SD) video coding with H264/AVC. Experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
