Title

Networks - I: Improving the quality of streaming video through dynamic chrominance adjustment

Abstract/Description

Usage of streaming video over the Internet and mobile networks has become quite common due to its convenience and low cost. In all the uses of streaming video over networks that do not guarantee bandwidths, the major challenge is to maintain acceptable video viewing experience in case of a network congestion. This paper presents a technique that has the potential to solve this challenge, at least to a certain extent. The proposed technique dynamically adjusts the chrominance level of the video images to fit the available bandwidth. Analysis of the results indicates that dynamic chrominance adjustment does improve the viewing quality of the streaming video significantly.
