1.  Introduction

   This document specifies the payload format for packetization of KLV
   (Key-Length-Value) Encoded Data, as defined by the Society of Motion
   Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) in [SMPTE-ST336], into the
   Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) [RFC3550].

   The payload format is defined in such a way that arbitrary KLV data
   can be carried.  No restrictions are placed on which KLV data keys
   can be used.

   A brief description of SMPTE ST 336, "Data Encoding Protocol Using
   Key-Length-Value", is given.  The payload format itself, including
   use of the RTP header fields, is specified in Section 4.  The media
   type and IANA considerations are also described.  This document
   concludes with security considerations relevant to this payload
   format.
