The European STREP Project SUIT involves the development of a multiple description scalable video codec for the transmission of video content over DVB-T/H and WiMAX channels. In this paper, we elaborate on the architectural design choices for such a multiple description transmission system, which utilizes H.264 Scalable Video Coding (SVC). We follow a phased approach focusing on the following un-balanced multiple description coding approaches: fully redundant unbalanced multiple description coding, multiple description coding based on redundant slices and multiple description coding by means of embedded multiple description quantisation.
