In the ecological chain of mobile video communication, most of the existing video coding schemes are focusing on the compression performance while sacrificing the computational complexity. For mobile-to-mobile video communication, both the transmitter and receiver devices may have limited computing resources. Consequently, the unbalance between the power consumption and compression efficiency is critical for the video communication ecosystem. Based on the advantages of the cloud computing, this study proposes a low complexity end-to-end video communication system based on the cloud transcoding. A distributed video coding (DVC) to high efficiency video coding (HEVC) transcoder is proposed for implementation on cloud, while the user ends are computational light-weighted.
