      Pages: 477 - 488
      Abstract: This paper provides a detailed performance analysis of the physical layer of two state-of-the-art point-to-multipoint (PTM) technologies: evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) and Advanced Television Systems Committee - Third Generation (ATSC 3.0). The performance of these technologies is evaluated and compared using link-level simulations, considering relevant identified scenarios. A selection of Key Performance Indicators for the International Mobile Telecommunications 2020 (IMT-2020) evaluation process has been considered. Representative use cases are also aligned to the test environments as defined in the IMT-2020 evaluation guidelines. It is observed that ATSC 3.0 outperforms both eMBMS solutions, i.e., MBMS over Single Frequency Networks (MBSFN) and Single-Cell PTM (SC-PTM) in terms of spectral efficiency, peak data rate and mobility, among others. This performance evaluation serves as a benchmark for comparison with a potential 5G PTM solution.

  • Comparison of Low-Density Parity-Check Codes in ATSC 3.0 and 5G Standards
    • Authors: Seok-Ki Ahn;Kyung-Joong Kim;Seho Myung;Sung-Ik Park;Kyeongcheol Yang;
      Pages: 489 - 495
      Abstract: Recently, low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes have been adopted in Advanced Television Systems Committee 3.0 and 3rd Generation Partnership Project 5G standards. In this paper, we present their structures in detail. They are delicately designed, based on the structures of quasi-cyclic LDPC codes and multi-edge type LDPC codes. The differences in their base matrices and parity-check matrices used in both standards are highlighted from the viewpoint of the distinction between broadcasting and cellular communication systems. Numerical results show that they are very competitive in their respective areas.

      Abstract: This paper presents implementation and memory use aspects for layered division multiplexing (LDM) technology defined in the next generation terrestrial broadcast standard, called advanced television systems committee (ATSC) 3.0. As LDM becomes a new method that combines multiple broadcast contents, its practical considerations on transmitter and receiver implementations as well as memory usages are described in this paper. When multiple physical layer pipes are used, the feasibility of the implementation and memory use aspects are discussed, and the performance analysis in comparison with other multiplexing techniques that ATSC 3.0 offers is shown.

  • Joint Layer Prediction for Improving SHVC Compression Performance and
           Error Concealment
    • Authors: Xiem Hoangvan;Byeungwoo Jeon;
      Pages: 504 - 520
      Abstract: Scalable high efficiency video coding (SHVC) standard is expected to play a more important role in the heterogeneous landscape of broadcasting, multimedia, networks, and various services applications as it is specified as a layered coding technique in the advanced television systems committee 3.0. However, its block-based structure of temporal and spatial prediction makes it sensitive to information loss and error propagation due to transmission errors. In this context, we propose an improved SHVC with a joint layer prediction (JLP) solution which adaptively combines the decoded information from the base and the enhancement layers to create an additional reference for the SHVC enhancement encoder. To optimize the quality of the joint prediction, the minimum mean square error estimation is executed in computing a combination factor which gives weights to each contribution of the decoded information from the layers. In addition, the proposed JLP is integrated into the SHVC decoder to work as an error concealment solution to mitigate the error propagation happening inevitably in practical video transmission. Experiments have shown that the proposed SHVC framework significantly outperforms its relevant benchmarks, notably by up to 14.8% in bitrate reduction with respect to the standard SHVC codec. The proposed SHVC error concealment strategy also greatly improves the concealed picture quality as well as reducing the problem of error propagation when compared to conventional error concealment approaches.

  • Video Streaming Adaptation Strategy for Multiview Navigation Over DASH
    • Authors: Chao Yao;Jimin Xiao;Yao Zhao;Anlong Ming;
      Pages: 521 - 533
      Abstract: Video content delivery over Internet is receiving increasing attention from both industry and academia, especially for the multiview video contents, as it is the basis to support various applications, such as 3-D video, virtual reality, free view video, and so on. To cope with the dynamic nature of Internet throughput, dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP (DASH) has been introduced to control the video streaming based on the network conditions. In this paper, we design a streaming framework to improve the user experience of the multiview video streaming over DASH, considering the user behavior of the viewpoint navigation during the streaming process. To eliminate the view switching delay, a multiple view navigation rule is introduced to pre-fetch the possible switching viewpoints. An optimal bitrate allocation scheme is proposed for the introduced rule, allowing the clients to maximize the video quality. Moreover, we found the video quality and the playback starvation probability are conflicting factors, while both are essential for the user's quality of experience (QoE). To tackle this issue, a QoE optimization solution is designed to maximize the overall performance in the proposed framework. Several experiments verify the effectiveness of the proposed framework, and the results demonstrate that the proposed framework outperforms two typical DASH methods.

  • PeQASO: Perceptual Quality Assessment of Streamed Videos Using Optical
           Flow Features
    • Authors: Mohammed A. Aabed;Ghassan AlRegib;
      Pages: 534 - 545
      Abstract: In this paper, we introduce PeQASO, a perceptual quality assessment framework for streamed videos using optical flow features. This approach is a reduced-reference pixel-based and relies only on the deviation of the optical flow of the corrupted frames. This technique compares an optical flow descriptor from the received frame against the descriptor obtained from the anchor frame. This approach is suitable for videos with complex motion patterns. Our technique does not make any assumptions on the coding conditions, network loss patterns or error concealment techniques. In this paper, we consider both sources of artifacts and distortions in streaming, including compression artifacts. We validate our proposed metric by testing it on a variety of distorted sequences from three proposed and commonly utilized video quality assessment databases. Our results show that our metric estimates the perceptual quality at the sequence level accurately. We report the correlation coefficients with the differential mean opinion scores reported in the database. For compression artifacts, the results show Spearman's and Pearson's correlations of 0.96 and 0.94 for all the tested sequences, respectively. For channel-induced distortion, the results show Spearman's and Pearson's correlations of 0.88 and 0.89, respectively. For all other distortions, the average Spearman's and Pearson's correlations are 0.82 and 0.79, respectively.

  • Bitrate-Based No-Reference Video Quality Assessment Combining the Visual
           Perception of Video Contents
    • Authors: Juncai Yao Yao;Guizhong Liu;
      Pages: 546 - 557
      Abstract: In video communication, the quality of video is mainly determined by bitrate in general. Moreover, the effect of video contents and their visual perception on video quality assessment (VQA) is often overlooked. However, in fact, for different videos, although the bitrates are the same, their VQA scores are still significantly different. Hence, it is assumed that the bitrate, video contents, and human visual characteristics mainly affect the VQA. Based on the above three aspects, in this paper, we designed a bitrate-based no-reference (NR) VQA metric combining the visual perception of video contents, namely, BRVPVC. In this metric, first an initial VQA model was proposed by only considering the bitrate alone. Then, the visual perception model for video contents was designed based on the texture complexity and local contrast of image, temporal information of video, and their visual perception features. Finally, two models were synthesized by adding certain weight coefficients into an overall VQA metric, namely, BRVPVC. Furthermore, ten reference videos and 150 distorted videos in the LIVE video database were used to test the metric. Moreover, based on the results of evaluating the videos in LIVE, VQEG, IRCCyN, EPFL-PoliMI, IVP, CSIQ, and Lisbon databases, the performance of BRVPVC is respectively compared with that of six full-reference (FR) metrics and ten NR VQA metrics. The results show that our VQA metric has a higher accuracy than six common FR VQA metrics and eight NR VQA metrics, and it is close to other two NR VQA metrics in accuracy. The corresponding values of Pearson linear correlation coefficient and Spearman rank order correlation coefficient reached 0.8547 and 0.8260, respectively. In addition, the computational complexity of proposed VQA metric is lower than video signal-to-noise ratio, video quality model, motion-based video integrity evaluation, spatiotemporal most apparent distortion, V-BLINDS, and V-CORNIA metrics. Moreover, the proposed metric has-a better generalization property than these metrics.

  • Reduction of Padding Overhead for RLNC Media Distribution With Variable
           Size Packets
    • Authors: Maroua Taghouti;Daniel E. Lucani;Juan A. Cabrera;Martin Reisslein;Morten Videbæk Pedersen;Frank H. P. Fitzek;
      Pages: 558 - 576
      Abstract: Random linear network coding (RLNC) can enhance the reliability of multimedia transmissions over lossy communication channels. However, RLNC has been designed for equal size packets, while many efficient multimedia compression schemes, such as variable bitrate (VBR) video compression, produce unequal packet sizes. Padding the unequal packet sizes with zeros to the maximum packet size creates an overhead on the order of 20%-50% or more for typical VBR videos. Previous padding overhead reduction approaches have focused on packing the unequal packet sizes into fixed size packets, e.g., through packet bundling or chaining and fragmentation. We introduce an alternative padding reduction approach based on coding macro-symbols (MSs), whereby an MS is a fixed-sized part of a packet. In particular, we introduce a new class of RLNC, namely MS RLNC which conducts RLNC across columns of MSs, instead of the conventional RLNC across columns of complete packets of equal size. Judiciously arranging the source packets into columns of MSs, e.g., through shifting the source packets horizontally relative to each other, supports favorable MS RLNC coding properties. We specify the MS RLNC encoding and decoding mechanisms and analyze their complexity for a range of specific MS arrangement strategies within the class of MS RLNC. We conduct a comprehensive padding overhead evaluation encompassing both previous approaches of packing the unequal size packets into fixed size packets as well as the novel MS RLNC approaches with long VBR video frame size traces. We find that for small RLNC generation sizes that support low network transport delays, MS RLNC achieves the lowest padding overheads; while for large generation sizes, both the previous packing approaches and the novel MS RLNC approaches effectively reduce the padding overhead.

  • Cache-Based Popular Services Pushing on High-Speed Train by Using
           Converged Broadcasting and Cellular Networks
    • Authors: Bing Li;Jian Xiong;Bo Liu;Lin Gui;Meikang Qiu;Zhiping Shi;
      Pages: 577 - 588
      Abstract: This paper presents a cache-based popular services pushing solution on high-speed train (HST) by using converged wireless broadcasting and cellular networks. Pushing and caching popular services on the HST to improve the capacity of the network is a very efficient way; and it can also bring a better user experience. The most popular services are transmitted and cached on the vehicle relay station of the train ahead the departure time in the proposed model. Then, the most popular services are broadcasted and cached on the User Equipment after all the passengers are on the train; the less popular services are delivered to the passengers by P2P mode through the relayed cellular network on the train. Specifically, we firstly use the dynamic programming algorithm to maximize the network capacity in limited pushing time, which can be converted to the 0-1 Knapsack problem. Furthermore, we propose three greedy algorithms to approximate the optimal solution on account of the high time complexity of dynamic programming when the input scale gets bigger. And simulation results show that the proposed popularity-based greedy algorithm performs well. Moreover, as the passengers may get on and off the HST when arriving at an intermediate station, a services rebroadcast algorithm is employed when more intermediate stations are considered. U-shaped distribution is adopted to indicate the number of passengers getting on and off the train. Simulations also show that the proposed rebroadcast algorithm can efficiently improve the capacity of the converged networks.

  • A Study on Dual-Polarized MIMO-ICI Canceller With Complexity Reduction
           Under Mobile Reception of OFDM Signals
    • Authors: Akira Nakamura;Hiroaki Otsubo;Makoto Itami;
      Pages: 589 - 600
      Abstract: In the next Japanese digital terrestrial television broadcasting systems, the scheme that combines orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and dual-polarized multi-input multi-output (MIMO) is proposed. One of the major problems to be considered is inter-carrier interference (ICI) that is generated by Doppler-spread under mobile reception of MIMO-OFDM systems. In this case, reception characteristics are deteriorated significantly. The ICI canceller for MIMO-OFDM can demodulate transmitted symbols. To realize the MIMO-ICI canceller based on zero-forcing (ZF), it is necessary to reduce the complex calculations such as matrix operations. Therefore, complexity reduction of the MIMO-ICI canceller is proposed. The proposed MIMO-ICI canceller with complexity reduction based on ZF can improve the influence of ICI with low complexity. However, reception characteristics are deteriorated as compared to the MIMO-ICI canceller based on ZF. Thus, improving scheme of MIMO-ICI canceller with complexity reduction based on ZF is proposed. In the proposed scheme, the iterative detection is adopted. In addition, MIMO-ICI cancellers based on minimum mean square error (MMSE) are proposed. As the results of computer simulations, the MIMO-ICI cancellers using iterative detection based on ZF and MMSE can improve the reception characteristics with low complexity.

  • Receiver Design for Alamouti Coded FBMC System in Highly Frequency
           Selective Channels
    • Authors: Jun Li;Da Chen;Daiming Qu;Yue Zhang;Tao Jiang;
      Pages: 601 - 608
      Abstract: Alamouti coded filter bank multicarrier systems suffer from severe performance degradation in highly frequency selective channels. To address the above problem, we propose a novel Alamouti decoding receiver based on frequency spreading/despreading, where the Alamouti decoding module is moved to the front of the frequency despreading module. Unlike the traditional subcarrier-based Alamouti decoding scheme, the Alamouti decoding in the proposed receiver could be performed on each frequency point to better combat the frequency selectivity. Moreover, the full diversity is achieved on each frequency point by introducing a phase factor before Alamouti decoding. Simulation results demonstrate the performance advantages of our proposed receiver over the traditional scheme in highly frequency selective channels.

      Pages: 609 - 626
      Abstract: The exploitation of the bandwidth portions in the millimeter wave domain, namely extremely high frequencies (EHFs) will open new perspectives to future satellite services, in particular for high quality TV broadcasting and multimedia content delivery. The present work aims at surveying the opportunities and challenges of EHF exploitation for broadband satellite applications in the broadcast framework. Theoretical capacity evaluation confirms that EHF satellite links can offer unprecedented data-rates, clearly superior than that actually provided by Ku and Ka-bands. However, some crucial issues are still to be solved, mainly in terms of mitigation of tropospheric propagation impairments and appropriate waveform design. Link and capacity analysis will be the basis for the investigation of future application scenarios of broadcast EHF satcoms, namely high-definition TV (HDTV) and ultra-HDTV, with particular emphasis to 4K and 8K video formats.

      Pages: 627 - 635
      Abstract: Camera-equipped unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or “drones,” are a recent addition to standard audiovisual shooting technologies. As drone cinematography is expected to further revolutionize media production, this paper presents an overview of the state-of-the-art in this area, along with a brief review of current commercial UAV technologies and legal restrictions on their deployment. A novel taxonomy of UAV cinematography visual building blocks, in the context of filming outdoor events where targets (e.g., athletes) must be actively followed, is additionally proposed. Such a taxonomy is necessary for progress in intelligent/autonomous UAV shooting, which has the potential of addressing current technology challenges. Subsequently, the concepts and advantages inherent in multiple-UAV cinematography are introduced. The core of multiple-UAV cinematography consists in identifying different combinations of multiple single-UAV camera motion types, assembled in meaningful sequences. Finally, based on the defined UAV/camera motion types, tools for managing a partially autonomous, multiple-UAV fleet from the director's point of view are presented. Although the overall focus is on cinematic coverage of sports events, the majority of our contributions also apply in different scenarios, such as movies/TV production, newsgathering, or advertising.

  • Implementation Methodologies of Deep Learning-Based Signal Detection for
           Conventional MIMO Transmitters
    • Authors: Myung-Sun Baek;Sangwoon Kwak;Jun-Young Jung;Heung Mook Kim;Dong-Joon Choi;
      Pages: 636 - 642
      Abstract: In this paper, simple methodologies of deep learning application to conventional multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems are presented. The deep learning technologies with deep neural network (DNN) structure, emerging technologies in various engineering areas, have been actively investigated in the field of communication engineering as well. In the physical layer of conventional communication systems, there are practical challenges of application of DNN: calculating complex number in DNN and designing proper DNN structure for a specific communication system model. This paper proposes and verifies simple solutions for the difficulty. First, we apply a basic DNN structure for signal detection of one-tap MIMO channel. Second, convolutional neural network (CNN) and recurrent neural network (RNN) structures are presented for MIMO system with multipath fading channel. Our DNN structure for one-tap MIMO channel can achieve the optimal maximum likelihood detection performance, and furthermore, our CNN and RNN structures for multipath fading channel can detect the transmitted signal properly.
