In this paper a scalable multiple description video coding approach based on embedded multiple description scalar quantization (EMDSQ) is presented. The proposed approach enables the progressive transmission of video over unreliable channels with variable bandwidth. Experimental results show that in lossy transmission conditions the proposed embedded multiple description coding system yields better rate-distortion performance compared to single description video coding and can efficiently sustain 20% of losses.
