This work addresses the transmission of pre-encoded video containing meteorological data over JPIP. The primary requirement for the rate allocation algorithm deployed in the JPIP server is the real-time processing demands of the application. A secondary requirement for the proposed algorithm is that it should be able to either minimize the mean squared error (MMSE) of the video sequence, or minimize the maximum distortion (MMAX). The MMSE criterion considers the minimization of the overall distortion, whereas MMAX achieves pseudo-constant quality for all frames. The proposed rate allocation method employs the FAst rate allocation through STeepest descent (FAST) method that was initially developed for video-on-demand applications. The adaptation of FAST in the proposed remote sensing scenario considers meteorological data captured by the European meteorological satellites (Meteosat). Experimental results suggest that FAST can be successfully adopted in remote sensing scenarios.
