The key to good decoding performance in distributed video coding systems lies in the efficient prediction of frames using side information. Previously, this process has been performed without considering the progressive nature of the synthesis of the final frame. Observing the fact that incorrectly predicted areas of the current frame can be detected at different levels of final frame synthesis, an algorithm is proposed for refinement of side information synthesis based on an additional stage of motion estimation. The additional stage is performed on correctly decoded DC frames and is used to significantly improve the motion prediction of the final resolution frames, which leads to enhanced performance of the overall system.
