A general approach for joint source channel matching based on a parametric distortion model that incorporates the flexibility and constraints of both the source and the channel is developed. The generality of the approach is studied by applying to the Said-Pearlman progressive image coder with two types of channel coders, a coder with orthogonal symbols of different power, and fixed-rate BPSK modulation overlaid with Reed Solomon Codes. The analytical results are nearly identical to results found in current literature on fully joint source channel optimizations.
