Scalability is a powerful concept for adaptive video content delivery to many end users having heterogeneous and dynamic characteristics of networks and devices. In order to maximize users' quality of experience by selecting appropriate combinations of multiple scalability parameters, it is crucial to understand and model the relationship between multidimensional scalability and perceived quality. In this article, we address the latest advances in subjective and objective quality evaluation of multidimensional video scalability for optimal content distribution, present their applications, and discuss future trends and challenges.
