Technical Summary
This memo describes an RTP payload format for the ISO/IEC
International Standard 15444-1 | ITU-T Rec. T.800, otherwise better
known as: JPEG 2000. JPEG 2000 features are considered in the 
of this payload format. JPEG 2000 is a truly scalable compression
technology allowing applications to encode once and decode many
different ways. JPEG 2000 video stream is formed by extending 
from a single image to a series of JPEG 2000 images.

Working Group Summary
This is a reasonably standard RTP payload format, although it has 
been under discussion since the 52nd IETF. Key discussion points in 
the working group were the provision of optional IPR-encumbered 
features (now removed to draft-ietf-avt-rtp-jpeg2000-beam-09.txt) and 
allowing the use of non-90kHz RTP timestamp rates, for high accuracy 
synchronisation when non-standard frame rates are used.

Document Quality
Media type review was conducted starting 24 September 2007, with no 
objections raised. There is at least one implementation.
