Quantized frame expansions are proposed as a method for generalized multiple description coding, where each quantized coefficient is a description. Whereas previous investigations have revealed the robustness of frame expansions to additive noise and quantization, this represents a new application of frame expansions. The performance of a system based on quantized frame expansions is compared to that of a system with a conventional block channel code. The new system performs well when the number of lost descriptions (erasures on an erasure channel) is hard to predict.
