This document describes an RTP payload format for transporting Enhanced AC-3 (E-AC-3) encoded audio data. E-AC-3 is a high quality, multichannel audio coding format and is an extension of the AC-3 audio coding format, which is used in US HDTV, DVD, cable and satellite television and other media. E-AC-3 is an optional audio format in US and world-wide digital television and high definition DVD formats. The RTP payload format as presented in this document includes support for data fragmentation.
