Multimedia is increasingly becoming a utility rather than mere entertainment. The range of video applications has increased, some of which are becoming indispensable in modem lifestyle. Video surveillance is one area that has attracted significant amount of focus and also benefited from considerable research effort for development. However, it is noted that there is still a notable technological gap between an ideal video surveillance platform and the available solutions, mainly in the form of the encoder and decoder complexity balance and the associated design costs. In this thesis, we tocus on an emerging technology, Distributed Video Coding (DVC), which is ideally suited for the video surveillance scenario, and fits many other potential applications too.
