Abstract Three-Dimensional Video (3DV) communication through wireless channels suffers from bit-streams losses. Therefore, the efficient performance of 3DV transmission techniques over wireless networks is a considerable hot research topic. A high compression ratio must be introduced to meet future bandwidth restriction for optimized 3DV transmission. Unfortunately, the compressed 3DV bit-streams are more sensitive and vulnerable to packet losses. In this paper, we propose the application of chaotic Baker interleaving with equalization and convolution coding for efficient Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT)-based Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) watermarked 3DV transmission over a Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Accesses (MC-CDMA) wireless channel. Firstly, the compressed 3DV frames are watermarking using the DWT+SVD watermarking process. After that, chaotic interleaving is applied to minimize the channel effects on the transported bit-streams and it also adds an encryption to the transported 3DV frames. To test the performance of the proposed hybrid techniques; several experiments on different (DWT+SVD) watermarked 3DV frames have been tested. The experimental results confirm that the received watermarked 3DV frames still have high Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratios (PSNRs) and efficient watermark extraction is possible.
