Abstract
With the emergence of a network-centric philosophy of military operations, the behavior of video applications over resource-constrained information networks is of increasing interest in the development of future naval information systems. This thesis analyzes the impact of compression, delay variance, and channel noise on perceived networked video quality using commercially available off-the-shelf equipment and software. An experimental setup for packet video is developed for quantitative and qualitative analysis of Motion JPEG video transmitted over a constrained Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) network. Bandwidth profile analysis for various types of video points out the impracticality of ATM bandwidth and cell delay management algorithms for mainstream video applications, such as entertainment and distance learning. Additionally, functional limitations of individual system components are identified for consideration in the planning of future experimental work.
