Title
(EN) TRANSMISSION PARAMETER CONTROL FOR SEGMENT DELIVERY
(FR) COMMANDE DE PARAMÈTRE DE TRANSMISSION POUR DISTRIBUTION DE SEGMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A method of delivering a video sequence in a network, the sequence comprising a plurality of temporal segments encoded at a plurality of qualities, the method comprising: storing a dataset indicating the relative size of segments of the video stream; computing in dependence on that dataset a time schedule for delivery of the segments, the time schedule indicating a target delivery time for each segment sufficient to deliver all the segments in the sequence in time for decoding and being independent of the encoded quality of each segment; for each segment: setting one or more transmission parameters for the segment in dependence on the target delivery time for the segment and the relative size of the segment; and delivering the segment over the network using the one or more transmission parameters.

La présente invention concerne un procédé de distribution d'une séquence vidéo dans un réseau, la séquence comprenant une pluralité de segments temporels codés à une pluralité de qualités, le procédé comprenant les étapes consistant : à stocker un ensemble de données indiquant la taille relative de segments du flux vidéo ; à calculer en fonction de cet ensemble de données un calendrier de distribution des segments, le calendrier indiquant un temps de livraison cible pour chaque segment suffisant pour délivrer tous les segments dans la séquence en temps pour le décodage et étant indépendant de la qualité codée de chaque segment ; pour chaque segment : à régler au moins un paramètre de transmission pour le segment en fonction du temps de distribution cible pour le segment et de la taille relative du segment ; et à distribuer le segment sur le réseau à l'aide desdits paramètres de transmission.
