Visual Artifacts

The SoftCast scheme has been proposed as a promising alternative to traditional video broadcasting systems in wireless environments. In its current form, SoftCast performs image decoding at the receiver side by using a Linear Least Square Error (LLSE) estimator. Such approach maximizes the reconstructed quality in terms of Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR). However, we show that the LLSE induces an annoying blur effect at low Channel Signal-to-Noise Ratio (CSNR) quality. To cancel this artifact, we propose to replace the LLSE estimator by the Zero-Forcing (ZF) one.

SoftCast-based linear video coding and transmission (LVCT) schemes have been proposed as a promising alternative to traditional video coding and transmission schemes in wireless environments. Currently, the performance of LVCT schemes is evaluated by means of traditional objective scores such as PSNR or SSIM.
