In this paper, we propose a distributed 3D dynamic mesh coding system. The system is based on Slepian and Wolf's and Wyner and Ziv's information-theoretic results. Our system extends the ideas in distributed video coding to 3D dynamic meshes with constant connectivity. The connectivity of the sequence and key frames are encoded and decoded by a conventional static mesh coder. The Wyner-Ziv frames are encoded independent of key frames but decoded jointly with decoded key frames. The joint decoding is performed by the low density parity check codes and the side information generated by linear interpolation of decoded key frames. Experimental results show that better rate-distortion performance is obtained compared to encoding each frame by a static mesh coder.
