Abstract: In this demo paper, we demonstrate and evaluate a novel Opportunistic Routing (OR) protocol for video multicast, namely Video-aware Multicast Opportunistic Routing (ViMOR), over 802.11 two-hop mesh networks. OR exploits the broadcast nature of the wireless medium and offers spatial diversity among the receivers. ViMOR extends MORE, a state of the art OR algorithm, by orchestrating packet transmissions and prioritizing video traffic, in order to conform with video streaming requirements. For the demonstration and evaluation of the proposed scheme, we proceeded with the development of the implementation on NITOS wireless testbed. Results showed a significant increase in average video-perception quality, compared to MORE protocol.
