In the future, digital set-top boxes may serve as the primary access point for wireless home networks, enabling mobile users to use video conferencing as well as streaming applications on hand-held devices. In this scenario, an important issue that must be addressed is the limited energy supply of a mobile device. This is of course a relevant issue for any wireless device. We focus on methods for efficiently utilizing transmission energy in wireless video communications. We present a general framework for the problem of minimizing the transmission energy required to provide an acceptable level of video quality. We discuss two special cases in which communication resources are adjusted simultaneously with the source coding parameters in order to provide (i) packet loss adaptation and (ii) transmission rate adaptation.
