For low-delay applications in Scalable Video Coding, there are two alternative coding strategies based on AR-FGS for compressing multiple FGS layers. However, their coding efficiencies both suffer largely from the inherent drifting errors. In this paper, a more efficient multiple FGS layers coding structure is presented, which can provide higher coding performance within wide bitrate range and stronger error resilience. This is achieved by incorporating the partialreconstructed enhancement

Thereupon the prediction drift can be effectively decreased, especially for the middle bitrate points. Further, through selecting different-quality enhancement layer references generated with cycle-based reconstruction mechanism, more flexible video quality can be supported to be more suitable for varied practical application requirements.
