For video communications over wireless ad hoc networks, multiple paths with limited bandwidth are common. It therefore presents new challenges to the video encoding. In this paper, we formulate the problem as a multiple path video summarization problem under bit rate constraints, where video summaries are generated to satisfy each channel's rate constraint, while the combined summary at the receiving end achieves the minimum summarization distortion. The optimal solution (within a convex hull approximation) is found by Lagrangian relaxation and dynamic programming. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.
