  • 1. Image Transport Protocol ITP (Synopsis)
  • 2. Analysis The Image Transport Protocol basically aims at faster transfer of JPEG image files with less redundancy. This protocol reduces the interactive latency in the image transmission. ITP is designed for the transmission of JPEG images only because GIF image format is compatible only with the TCP based in-order delivery of data and GIF images do not allow its image decoder to format individual data units (ADUs). This protocol is implemented over User Datagram Protocol (UDP). This enables outof-order delivery of datagrams, and hence unnecessary overhead due to handshaking is avoided. Thus the quality of the received images is improved. In the design of the protocol structure, the header format has been fixed and various fields in the header have been defined. The default values of various fields have been set. The size of the datagram has been formulated. In out-of-order delivery of ADUs, the ADU is being efficiently accommodated by the application even if it is larger than a single un-fragmented packet. The transmission of the ADUs is done over the User Datagram Protocol (UDP). In Receiver controller selective reliability the retransmission is controlled by the receiving application. The quality of the received image is improved and the unnecessary overhead generated by the sender is reduced. Receiver controls the transmission and retransmission of the Application Data Units (ADUs). Hence it is responsible for the loss of the ADUs, if any. Receiver control strategy is being implemented in
  • 3. order to enable the sender to send the required ADUs, rather than most of them at irrelevant time intervals. Sender transmits the Retransmission Time Out information and the receiver uses it during the various retransmission requests. The receiver does prioritization, since it is the receiver, which is aware of the required ADUs. Finally the performance is analysed using various QOS parameters like transit delay, throughput, Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) and it is being compared with the conventional approach of image transfer using TCP as base transport layer. TCP-based Image Transmission Drawbacks • High Interactive latency • Low Image quality due to reduction of non-bursty transfers. • No reliability because of unmodified protocol and image header. • Performance evaluations such as Timestamp, Retransmission Time Out, are not possible. • Entire image-file is transmitted due to in-order delivery.
  • 4. Image Transport Protocol Module Details Connections & Image Manager • Takes care of basic JPEG image operations like image reading, image writing (new image creation) and drawing on the screen. • Takes care of basic network operations like receiver initialization and listening, sender initialization and connection request and data transfer. Framing • Framing is dividing the image data into packets based on image dimensions. • Each row in the image matrix is encapsulated as a data unit and each data unit is sent at a time. Scheduling • In scheduling, the packets ordering is carried out. • In TCP scheduling, the receiver waits infinitely for the next packet if the previous packet is lost. Retransmission request is continuously sent until the next packet is received. • In ITP scheduling, the sender continues with the next packet even if a packet is lost, so that no delays will be there in image transfer. The lost rows in the received image are reconstructed during error-concealment. Error-Concealment • After the receiver has received the full image using ITP, the missing parts of the image are reconstructed using neighboring pixel information. Analysis and Comparison • TCP and ITP image transmission are compared using time. ITP takes less time in transferring the image as it does not waits for the lost packet to be re-transmitted. • Image received through TCP and image reconstructed through ITP will be exactly similar, but still TCP takes more time for image transmission.
