It has been recently demonstrated that, in distributed video coding (DVC) side-information dependent modeling of the correlation channel brings significant performance gains over side-information independent assumptions. In this letter, we present a novel technique enabling advanced side-information dependent estimation of the correlation channel at the decoder starting from a very coarse knowledge of it. The proposed technique triggers the design of a spatial-domain DVC codec which enables the suppression of the feedback channel. Experimental results show that the proposed codec achieves similar performance compared to the state-of-the-art in transform-domain Wyner-Ziv video coding while still operating at a fraction of its encoding complexity.
