The deployment of distributed devices and their applications in number of fields, has motivated the research in Distributed Source Coding (DSC). The research in this field has been branched into lossless and lossy DSC. Many approaches have been devised to achieve the theoretical bound of minimum sending rate to achieve lossless coding. In this paper, an analytical survey of theorems, techniques and applications of DSC has been performed. Based on this analysis, an efficient multiple description video coding approach has been developed which can be deployed over multi-channel mesh networks to achieve reliable video streaming over community mesh based Internet.
