Multiview video has gained significant interest in recent years. Generally speaking, Multiview video has more than one views from slightly different angles of the same scene. The huge amount of video data and the heterogeneous network condition pose great challenge for the transport of multiview video through internet or broadcast networks. In order to support variety of 3D application scenarios, selective transport of multi view video has to be deployed. This paper proposes a priority based selective transport framework of multiview video over MPEG-2 Transport Stream. The proposed framework achieves selective transport by extracting the related view components from MVC video as well as discarding lowest priority view components without obstructing the decoding process at the receiver client when the transport bandwidth is insufficient. To the best of our knowledge, this paper is the first to investigate a priority-based selective transport framework for delivery MVC video over MPEG-2 transport stream.
