Reliability and Congestion Control

  • Luca Delgrossi


The reliability a multimedia stream needs for transmission depends on the kind of media, the encoding of the media (and perhaps the hardware compressing and decompressing it), and the user requirements on media quality. On a superficial level, it looks as if audiovisual data does not require error handling mechanisms at all: a corrupt audio sample or a wrong video frame portion may not even be noticed because of the high data presentation rate.
