dc.description.abstract Application-layer forward error correction (FEC) is used in many multimedia communication systems to address the problem of packet loss in lossy packet networks. One powerful form of application-layer FEC is unequal error protection which protects the information symbols according to their importance. We propose a method for unequal error protection with a Fountain code. When the information symbols were partitioned into two protection classes (most important and least important), our method required a smaller transmission bit budget to achieve low bit error rates compared to the two state of the art techniques. We also compared our method to the two state of the art techniques for video unicast and multicast over a lossy network. Simulations for the scalable video coding (SVC) extension of the H.264/AVC standard showed that our method required a smaller transmission bit budget to achieve high quality video. en
