The use of forward error-control (FEC) coding, possibly in conjunction with passive-error recovery techniques, has emerged as a promising approach for real-time video transport over ATM networks for cell loss recovery and/or bit error correction, such as might be required for wireless links. Although FEC provides cell-loss recovery, through its erasure correcting capabilities, it also introduces transmission overhead which can possibly cause additional cell losses. A joint source-channel coding methodology is described to maximize the number of video sources multiplexed at a given quality of service (QoS), measured in terms of overall reproduced video quality. The transport channel is modeled as a block interference channel (BIC) and the multiplexer as a single server, deterministic service, finite buffer supporting N users. Based upon an information-theoretic characterization of the BIC and large deviation bounds on the buffer overflow probability, we describe a methodology that provides theoretically achievable upper limits on the number of sources multiplexed at a given level of performance. Performance of a specific coding technique using an MPEG-2 source encoder and interlaced non-binary Reed-Solomon (RS) channel codes is illustrated and shown to approach the information-theoretic predictions with increasing levels of complexity
