During the last years, video coding designers have proposed robust coding approaches that combine Multiple Description Coding (MDC) schemes with Distributed Video Coding (DVC) principles. In this way, it is possible to obtain a better error resilience since the distortion drifting through the sequence is significantly mitigated by the DVC coding unit. The paper presents a Multiple Description Distributed Video Coder (MDDVC) that codes the input video signal generating a set of "lossy" syndromes for each pixel block and creates different descriptions multiplexing primary and redundant video packets. Experimental results show that at high loss probabilities the proposed solution improves the results of the original MDC approach.
