This work presents the Continue data-flow control strategy, a JPIP-compliant solution for the interactive streaming of sequences of images that are transmitted over time-varying communication channels. In this context, the random fluctuation of the capacity of the transmission channel over the time forces the clients to prefetch a minimal amount of the code-stream of each image of the beginning of the transmitted sequence before the playback starts,
and the server to decide, in real-time, which amount of the code-stream of each compressed image is going to be transmitted. The estimated channel capacity is performed by clients and the rate-control at the server is straightforward, resulting in a highly scalable image retrieval system.
