7.10 Streaming of scalable content

The idea introduced in the previous section can be extended to the transmission of scalable video. This type of videos are divided into layers providing spatio-temporal multiresolution and progressive refinement. Moreover, these layers are sortered by priority (for example, in order to get the highest spatial resolution the lower ones are required first). Therefore, we can transmit each layer in a different channel prioritizing the transmissions using the ML (see Section ??), in acordance with the priority of the layers and the user preferences.
