“SVC codecs adapt to sub-par network connections by dropping packets or portions of the encoded picture in a way that reduces the frame rate or resolution of the picture, which prevents the picture from breaking up.”Stephen K. Campbell

A mobile phone, for example, might only receive the base layer.
