We consider the transmission of a Gaussian source through a block fading channel. Assuming each block is decoded independently, the received distortion depends on the tradeoff between quantization accuracy and probability of outage. Namely, higher quantization accuracy requires a higher channel code rate, which increases the probability of outage. Here we evaluate the received mean distortion with erasure coding across blocks as a function of the code length. We also evaluate the performance ofdoi:10.1109/glocom.2005.1578223 dblp:conf/globecom/ZachariadisHK05 fatcat:brtjtvy4gndsvhasjehvoacso4
