Many studies have applied the three-dimensional discrete wavelet transform (3D DWT) to video coding. It is known that corruptions of the lowest frequency sub-band (LL) coefficients of 3D DWT severely affect the visual quality of video. Recently, we proposed an error resilient 3D DWT video coding method (the conventional method) that employs dispersive grouping and an error concealment (EC). The EC scheme of our conventional method adopts a replacement technique of the lost LL coefficients. In this paper, we propose a new 3D DWT video transmission method in order to enhance error resilience. The proposed method adopts an error correction scheme using invertible codes to protect LL coefficients. We use half-rate Reed-Solomon (RS) codes as invertible codes. Additionally, to improve performance by using the effect of interleave, we adopt a new configuration scheme at the RS encoding stage. The evaluation by computer simulation compares the performance of the proposed method with that of other EC methods, and indicates the advantage of the proposed method.
