          RTP Payload Format for High Efficiency Video Coding
                   draft-ietf-payload-rtp-h265-06.txt

Abstract

   This memo describes an RTP payload format for the video coding
   standard ITU-T Recommendation H.265 and ISO/IEC International
   Standard 23008-2, both also known as High Efficiency Video Coding
   (HEVC) and developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video
   Coding (JCT-VC).  The RTP payload format allows for packetization
   of one or more Network Abstraction Layer (NAL) units in each RTP
   packet payload, as well as fragmentation of a NAL unit into
   multiple RTP packets.  Furthermore, it supports transmission of
   an HEVC bitstream over a single as well as multiple RTP streams.
   The payload format has wide applicability in videoconferencing,
   Internet video streaming, and high bit-rate entertainment-quality
   video, among others.
