Abstract : The SoftCast scheme has been proposed as a promising alternative to traditional video broadcasting systems in wireless environments. In its current form, SoftCast performs image decoding at the receiver side by using a Linear Least Square Error (LLSE) estimator. Such approach maximizes the reconstructed quality in terms of Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR). However, we show that the LLSE induces an annoying blur effect at low Channel Signal-to-Noise Ratio (CSNR) quality. To cancel this artifact, we propose to replace the LLSE estimator by the Zero-Forcing (ZF) one. In order to better understand the perceived quality offered by these two estimators, a mathematical characterization as well as an objective and subjective studies are performed. Results show that the gains brought by the LLSE estimator, in terms of PSNR and Structural SIMiliraty (SSIM), are limited and quickly tend to null value as the CSNR increases. However, higher gains are obtained by the ZF estimator when considering the recent Video Multi-method Assessment Fusion (VMAF) metric proposed by Netflix, which evaluates the perceptual video quality. This result is confirmed by the subjective assessment.
