Technical Summary This document specifies an RTP payload format for encapsulating Video Codec 1 (VC-1) compressed bit streams, as defined by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) standard, SMPTE 421M. SMPTE is the main standardizing body in the motion imaging industry and the SMPTE 421M standard defines a compressed video bit stream format and decoding process for television. Working Group Summary This draft is a product of the AVT working group. This is a reasonable RTP payload format, sharing much in common with other recent formats for complex video coding standards (e.g. the H.264 payload format). There was good debate over the design choices during the course of several working group meetings, with the draft being reviewed by a large number of working group participants. Request for ietf-types review was January 4, and no concerns were raised. The IETF was informed that this draft is required for the ETSI protocol DVB-H (ETSI TS 102 005: "Specification for the use of Video and Audio Coding in DVB services delivered directly over IP Protocols). Protocol Quality The protocol has been reviewed in detail by Regis Crinon, Miska Hannuksela, Colin Perkins, Shankar Regunathan, Gary Sullivan, Stephan Wenger, Dave Singer and Magnus Westerlund. Stephan and Miska provided extensive working group last call comments to clarify the text. We have spelled out the reviewers in this case to underline the breadth of the IETF discussion. Colin Perkins has been the WG Chair shepherd. Allison Mankin has been the Responsible Area Director.
