The main idea of this paper is to study how the
emerging H.264 SVC standard can be utilized for more
efficient power management in wireless video transmissions.
Our proposal uses a cross-layer approach which adapts the
power transmission level of the sender according to the SVC
information regarding the priority of the SVC NAL frame.
Our aim is to improve transmission statistics, and therefore
user experience, without unnecessary power consumption. We
use extensive experimentation on the ns2 network simulator,
which we have specifically modified for this purpose, in order
to verify this approach.
