This document describes the Unidirectional Hypertext Transfer Protocol, or UHTTP. UHTTP is a simple, robust, one-way data transfer protocol that is designed to efficiently deliver resource data in a one-way broadcast-only environment. This transfer protocol is appropriate for delivery of HTML and other content resources using IP multicast over television vertical blanking interval (IP/VBI) and other unidirectional transport systems.
