In the most basic description, encryption is a method of encoding a message so it can only be read by the sender and intended recipient. Therefore, inversion scrambling is a form of encryption. Its a very poor method but still encryption.

The meaning gets skewed these days since most encryption is geared towards computer data, so most people assume encryption must include 1s and 0s, but not so. Its kind of like people saying an SDR radio can't be an SDR unless it has a computer attached. Nonsense.
