The Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) is a text-based protocol for controlling the delivery of real-time data. The protocol can be compressed by using Signaling Compression (SigComp). Similarly, the Session Description Protocol (SDP) is a text-based protocol intended for describing multimedia sessions for the purposes of session announcement, session invitation, and other forms of multimedia session initiation. This memo defines the RTSP/SDP-specific static dictionary that SigComp may use in order to achieve higher efficiency. The dictionary is compression algorithm independent. The document provides a new static dictionary for RTSP and SDP. The dictionary is to be used in conjunction with RTSP, SDP and SigComp.
