In this work, we establish a full single-letter characterization of the rate-distortion region of an instance of the Gray–Wyner model with side information at the decoders. Specifically, in this model, an encoder observes a pair of memoryless, arbitrarily correlated, sources (Sn1,Sn2) and communicates with two receivers over an error-free rate-limited link of capacity R0 , as well as error-free rate-limited individual links of capacities R1 to the first receiver and R2 to the second receiver. Both receivers reproduce the source component Sn2 losslessly; and Receiver 1 also reproduces the source component Sn1 lossily, to within some prescribed fidelity level D1 . In addition, Receiver 1 and Receiver 2 are equipped, respectively, with memoryless side information sequences Yn1 and Yn2 . Important in this setup, the side information sequences are arbitrarily correlated among them, and with the source pair (Sn1,Sn2) ; and are not assumed to exhibit any particular ordering. Furthermore, by specializing the main result to two Heegard–Berger models with successive refinement and scalable coding, we shed light on the roles of the common and private descriptions that the encoder should produce and the role of each of the common and private links. We develop intuitions by analyzing the developed single-letter rate-distortion regions of these models, and discuss some insightful binary examples.
