Summary: 
A novel standard-compliant multiple description (MD) video codec is proposed in this paper, which aims to achieve effective redundancy allocation using inter- and intra-description correlation. The inter-description correlation at macro block (MB) level is applied to produce side information of different modes which is helpful for better side decoding quality. Furthermore, the intra-description correlation at MB level is exploited to design the adaptive skip mode for higher compression efficiency. The experimental results exhibit a better rate of side and central distortion performance compared with other relevant MDC schemes.
