In this paper, we study multiple description (MD) coding and transport for real-time video using multiple asymmetric paths in a packetized network. In particular, we construct the motion- compensated (MC) MD codes using MC-FGS video coder, based on the statistical characteristics and the asymmetry of the multiple routing paths. The MCMDs are the optimally allocated to the multiple paths to minimize the end-to-end video distortion. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed video transport system can achieve improved performance in both end user quality-of-service and error resilience.
