Sanna Laine participated in 8th International Conference on Mobile Multimedia Communications (MobiMedia). Conference was held at the end of May in Chengdu, China. Sanna presented research paper "H.264 QoS and Application Performance with Different Streaming Protocols".
In the study, the performance of three different streaming protocols in a disturbed communication channel is evaluated with a modified version of the FFPlay player. A H.264 encoded video is used as a test sequence. The number of displayed image frames, the frame rate and playout duration are used as objective metrics for QoS. The metrics brings out differences of streaming protocols in our test environment. They are measured at the application level and have a connection to the user experience.
