We address channel code rate optimization for transmission of non-scalable coded video sequences over orthogonal frequency division multiplexing networks. A slice loss visibility (SLV) model is used to evaluate the visual importance of each H.264 slice. Based on both the SLV model and the frequency diversity order available from the channel, we propose a cross-layer technique to allocate video slices within a 2-D time-frequency resource block, and optimize the unequal channel code rate profile, in order to better protect more visually important slices. The proposed algorithm outperforms baseline ones which do not take into account the SLV.
