Internet-Draft       RTP Payload Format for HEVC      February 12, 2014

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) [HEVC], 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 stream
   over a single as well as multiple RTP flows.  The payload format has
   wide applicability in videoconferencing, Internet video streaming,
   and high bit-rate entertainment-quality video, among others.
