As an appliance that achieves rate reduction of MPEG-2 multi-program transport streams, MPEG-2 multi-program transport stream transcoder has been proposed. This transcoder needs to multiplex packets without any STD buffer failure. However, no efficient packet-multiplexing scheme has been reported until now. In this paper, we propose packet-multiplexing scheme that no STD buffer failure occurs in MPEG-2 multi-program transport stream transcoder. This proposed scheme is implemented by the following ways: 1) PSI packets are output in constant interval, 2) audio packets are output in the same PCR as that of input transport stream, 3) video packets are output so that the intervals of each output packet for every video elementary stream should be constant. From simulation experiments, we show the status of STD buffer and show the effectiveness for our proposed scheme.
