In this paper we propose a novel error concealment algorithm for video transmission over wireless networks potentially subject to packet erasures. In particular, we develop a technique for the replenishment of missing macroblocks, which aims at minimizing the impact of the lost data on the resulting video with respect to the human visual system. The proposed algorithm operates three reconstruction stages at different scales, by first recovering smooth large-scale patterns, then large-scale structures, and finally local edges in the lost macroblock. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm achieves improved visual quality of the reconstructed frames with respect to other state-of-the-art techniques, as well as better PSNR results.
