This paper presents a novel unequal error protection (UEP) video transmission scheme based on dynamic resource allocation in a MIMO-OFDM system in order to improve the video transmission performance over wideband wireless channels. In this new scheme, a low density parity code (LDPC) is combined with a complexity reduced power reallocation algorithm to utilize the excess powers which margin from the powers necessary to meet the modulation level selected under a certain BER constraint. Furthermore, by taking full advantage of the residual excess powers, unequal error protection on important bits of video streams is provided by the LDPC code. Accordingly, the transmission efficiency and quality are both increased. Simulation results have shown that the proposed scheme may achieve great improvement in both systems with or without perfect channel estimation.
