In this paper, we propose a novel multiple description coding (MDC) method, which offers benefits of the new H.265/HEVC video coding standard combined with path diversity systems for robust video transmissions. In the proposed method, two descriptions including odd and even video subsequences are encoded using H.265/HEVC coder and then transmitted over two distinct channels of a path diversity system. At the receiver, the proposed MDC decoder is designed using a novel concept of distributed video coding (DVC) to provide a high image quality for the reconstructed description. Experimental results show that the proposed method can achieve a wide range of tradeoffs between coding efficiency and error resilience, and provide much better H.265/HEVC quality of experiences (QoEs) for users than other conventional MDC methods results
