The paper addresses the end-to-end QoS problem of MPEG-4 FGS video streaming traffic delivery over a heterogeneous IP/DVB/UMTS network. It proposes and validates an architecture that explores the joint use of packet prioritization and scalable video coding together with the appropriate mapping of UMTS traffic classes to the DiffServ traffic classes. A set of experimental scenarios, involving eight different video sequences, demonstrates the quality gains of both scalable video coding and prioritized packetization. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
