Abstract

An investigation of unequal error protection (UEP) methods applied to JPEG image transmission using turbo codes is presented. The JPEG image is partitioned into two groups, i.e., DC components and AC components according to their respective sensitivity to channel noise. The highly sensitive DC components are better protected with a lower coding rate, while the less sensitive AC components use a higher coding rate. Simulation results are given to demonstrate how the UEP scheme outperforms the equal error protection (EEP) scheme in terms of bit error rate (BER) and peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR).
