Video communication can be severely afflicted by burst packet loss over unreliable networks. In this paper, we present a novel error resilient slice interleaving strategy for improving the robustness of video transmission over bursty loss channels. The interleaving pattern is designed to distribute the burst packet loss intelligently in a scattered pattern to guarantee that each lost slice has, as many as possible, spatial and temporal neighbors that are correctly received. This scheme can greatly strengthen the error concealment performance compared with traditional methods. Experimental results on different video sequences demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
