Scalability is the property of a coded signal that part of the coded bit stream can be decoded on its own. The output signal is a lower quality (for example, lower bandwidth) version of the output signal. Scalability is a well-known concept in video coding but has not been discussed much in audio coding. Principal possibilities of scalable audio coding are discussed. First examples of scalable audio coding are presented.
