Abstract—Nowadays the application of multimedia networks is rapidly growing due to the high demand for the real-time video transmission. The live video streaming via satellite is an ideal solution for people who want to share an event with others who cannot be there in person. However, the video transmission via satellite links is heavily affected by attenuation due to rain. This is especially so in the tropical region where the rainfall rate can be as high as 120mm/hr. In this paper, we will discuss the real-time video transmission via satellite links and analyze the rainfall attenuation on the quality of video.
Index Terms—Rain attenuation, satellite link, video quality, video streaming.
