Error concealment is a well-known technique to improve reproduced picture quality in cases which parts of the coded picture are not available at a decoder for reconstruction. The conventional error concealment methods generally make use of the correlation between a damaged marcoblock and its adjacent macroblocks in the same frame and/or the previous frame. However, performance results of concealment methods are different each other and dependent on how much damaged frames and macroblocks are correlated to surrounding ones temporally and spatially. Moreover, most of them can not conceal effectively the consecutively damaged frames or macro blocks caused by wireless bursty packet loss features, since motion vectors and correlation information between the damaged images are already destroyed. The proposed error concealment aware error resilient video coding is a new method which has an intelligent error concealment selector by using pre-estimation technique of the possibly damaged motion vectors at the encoder. The method recommends the best error concealment per macroblock by transmitting additionally its error concealment selection codes to the decoder. The chosen error concealment helps to conceal the damaged MB at the decoder even when losses of frames are bursty. The experimental results show the substantial effectiveness to improve video quality at the cost of a little bit overhead at the transmitted bit streams.
