               Requirements for Telepresence Multistreams

Abstract

   This memo discusses the requirements for specifications that enable
   telepresence interoperability by describing behaviors and protocols
   for Controlling Multiple Streams for Telepresence (CLUE).  In
   addition, the problem statement and related definitions are also
   covered herein.

1.  Introduction

   Telepresence systems greatly improve collaboration.  In a
   telepresence conference (as used herein), the goal is to create an
   environment that gives the users a feeling of (co-located) presence
   -- the feeling that a local user is in the same room with other local
   users and remote parties.  Currently, systems from different vendors
   often do not interoperate because they do the same tasks differently,
   as discussed in the Problem Statement section below (see Section 4).

   The approach taken in this memo is to set requirements for a future
   specification(s) that, when fulfilled by an implementation of the
   specification(s), provide for interoperability between IETF protocol-
   based telepresence systems.  It is anticipated that a solution for
   the requirements set out in this memo likely involves the exchange of
   adequate information about participating sites; this information that
   is currently not standardized by the IETF.

   The purpose of this document is to describe the requirements for a
   specification that enables interworking between different SIP-based
   [RFC3261] telepresence systems, by exchanging and negotiating
   appropriate information.  In the context of the requirements in this

   document and related solution documents, this includes both point-to-
   point SIP sessions as well as SIP-based conferences as described in
   the SIP conferencing framework [RFC4353] and the SIP-based conference
   control [RFC4579] specifications.  Non-IETF protocol-based systems,
   such as those based on ITU-T Rec. H.323 [ITU.H323], are out of scope.
