Technical Summary

This document specifies the use of the Session Description Protocol (SDP) to describe the parameters required to begin, join, receive data from, and/or end FLUTE sessions.  It also provides a Composite Session SDP media grouping semantic for grouping media streams into protocol-specific sessions, such as multiple-channel FLUTE sessions.

Working Group Summary

There is consensus in the WG to publish this document.  A WG Last Call including co-announcement on the MMUSIC mailing list, was conducted in April 2012.
