            RTP Payload Format for High Efficiency Video Coding
                    draft-ietf-payload-rtp-h265-05.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) [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.
