One-Size-Fits-All Wireless Video

ACM HotNets VIII, New York City, NY, October 2009

We present SoftCast, a new approach for wireless video that flips the conventional design; instead of requiring the source to pick an 802.11 bitrate and video resolution before transmission, it allows the receiver to decode a video whose bitrate and resolution are commensurate with the observed channel quality after reception. This approach has applications for multicast and mobile wireless receivers, whose channels differ across time and space.
