Distributed Video Coding (DVC) is a new video coding paradigm which mainly exploits the source statistics at the decoder based on the availability of some decoder side information. The quality of the side information has a major impact on the DVC Rate-Distortion (RD) performance in the same way the quality of the predictions had a major impact in predictive video coding. In this paper, a DVC solution exploiting multiple side information is proposed; the multiple side information is generated by frame interpolation and frame extrapolation targeting to improve the side information of a single estimation mode. Compared with the best available single side information
solutions, the proposed DVC solution with multiple side
information robustly improves the RD performance for the set of test sequences.
