Wireless networking technology will interconnect the consumer devices in the future homes. The capacity of the wireless technology is just sufficient to transport one or two high quality videos. When the wireless transmission is perturbed by the switching on of a microwave or a Bluetooth telephone, many artifacts appear on the screen during the display of the video. Two "scalable video" techniques are proposed to remove the artifacts. These techniques have a different effect on the quality of the video as perceived by the user. An experiment is presented which evaluates the effects of the two techniques dependent on their settings. Conclusions are drawn on the best setting dependent on the operational transmission conditions and the transmitted video.
