In recent years, Transform Domain Wyner-Ziv (TDWZ) video coding has been proposed as an efficient Distributed Video Coding (DVC) solution, which fully or partly exploits the source statistics at the decoder to reduce the computational burden at the encoder. In this paper, a parallel iterative LDPC decoding scheme is proposed to improve the coding efficiency of TDWZ video codecs. The proposed parallel iterative LDPC decoding scheme is able to utilize cross bitplane correlation during decoding, by iteratively refining the soft-input, updating a modeled noise distribution and thereafter enhancing the bitplane decoding performance. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme reduces the bit rate of Wyner-Ziv frames up to 5.6% and improves the rate-distortion (RD) performance of TDWZ.
