We study hybrid error control for real-time video transmission. The study is carried out using a proposed integrated joint source-channel coding framework, which jointly considers error resilient source coding, channel coding, and error concealment, in order to achieve the best video quality. We focus on the performance comparison of several error correction scenarios, such as forward error correction (FEC), retransmission, and the combination of both. Simulation results show that either FEC or retransmission can be optimal depending on the packet loss rates and network round trip time. The proposed hybrid FEC/retransmission scheme outperforms both.
