No-Reference H.264/AVC Statistical Multiplexing for DVB-RCS [chapter]

Hamed Ahmadi Aliabad, Sandro Moiron, Martin Fleury, Mohammed Ghanbari
2010 Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering  
Replacement of MPEG-2 by the H.264/AVC codec for satellite video services, including aggregated video for the DVB-RCS uplink, presents an opportunity to develop efficient statistical multiplexing.  ...  The number of channels in the multiplex can be increased through the scheme if there is a need to achieve an average of 40 dB PSNR across all inputs.  ...  H.264/AVC can use the same MPEG-2 Transport Stream (TS) [6] as previously employed by the MPEG-2 codec itself.  ...

A Study on the Optimal Implementation of Statistical Multiplexing in DVB Distribution Systems [article]

Alexandru Florin Antone, Radu Arsinte
2014 arXiv   pre-print
This study revealed that not all DVB providers are using statistical multiplexing.  ...  The method developed in this research can be implemented even in optimized statistical multiplexing systems, due to a residual use of null packets for data rate adjustment.  ...  The multiplexer evaluates the output bit rate of each encoder (MPEG Video) and adjust (using Mquant output) the encoding algorithm to keep the Transport Stream bit rate within allowed limits.  ...
