Abstract: Use of telecommunication technology to tackle medical accessibility challenges, termed 'Telemedicine', is getting attention from researchers around the world. Realizing such a system in low bandwidth network is even more challenging; majorly due to the heavy data payload caused by video frames. This paper introduces some innovative features so that a regular video conferencing solution can be designed which will be able to function satisfactorily under low bandwidth networks. This work also focuses on categorizing the video transmission into different streaming priority classes based on parameters such as frame rate and resolution, which are important in varying medical applications, in order to achieve a minimum standard across all network speeds starting from as low as 128kbps. Analysis of these classes show that the innovative methods used in reducing the huge data payload of video data indeed are effective and help in making the telemedicine application in low-bandwidth networks a reality. © 2013 IEEE.
