This paper proposes a new error concealment algorithm for packet video, effectively eliminating error propagation effects. Most standard video CODEC's use motion compensation to remove temporal redundancy. With such motion-compensated interframe processing, any packet loss may generate serious error propagation over more than ten consecutive frames. This kind of error propagation leads to perceptually annoying artifacts. Thus, proper error concealment algorithms need to be used to reduce this effect. The proposed algorithm adopts a one-pixel block overlap structure. With the redundancy information from the damaged frame and the following frames, the proposed POCS-based method can have consistently high performance in error concealment. According to experimental results, the proposed algorithm can successfully eliminate visible error propagation. In addition, the proposed algorithm is very robust. Experimental results show that it can have good error concealment results, even when the damaged frame loses all DCT coefficients.
