In this letter, we propose a framework for scalable video multicast, which exploits the scalability of scalable video and the multiuser diversity of OFDMA systems. We further propose a resource allocation algorithm which guarantees the base-quality video for all users, and improves the transmission efficiency for users with good channel conditions.
