We describe the architecture for our distributed video coding (DVC) system. Some key differences between our work and previous systems include a new method of enabling decoder motion compensation, and the use of serially concatenated accumulate syndrome codes for distributed source coding. To evaluate performance, we compare our system to the H.263+ and H.264/AVC video codecs. Experiments show that our system is comparable to DVC systems from Stanford and Berkeley in the sense that our system performs better than H.263+Intra, but worse than H.263+Inter and H.264/AVC.
