RFC7587 - RTP Payload Format for the Opus Speech and Audio Codec
This document defines the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) payload format for packetization of Opus-encoded speech and audio data necessary to integrate the codec in the most compatible way. It also provides an applicability statement for the use of Opus over RTP. Further, it describes media type registrations for the RTP payload format.
RFC7655 - RTP Payload Format for G.711.0
This document specifies the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) payload format for ITU-T Recommendation G.711.0. ITU-T Rec. G.711.0 defines a lossless and stateless compression for G.711 packet payloads typically used in IP networks. This document also defines a storage mode format for G.711.0 and a media type registration for the G.711.0 RTP payload format.
RFC7741 - RTP Payload Format for VP8 Video
This memo describes an RTP payload format for the VP8 video codec. The payload format has wide applicability, as it supports applications from low-bitrate peer-to-peer usage to high-bitrate video conferences.
RFC7798 - RTP Payload Format for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)
This memo describes an RTP payload format for the video coding standard ITU-T Recommendation H.265 and ISO/IEC International Standard 23008-2, both also known as High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) and developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC). The RTP payload format allows for packetization of one or more Network Abstraction Layer (NAL) units in each RTP packet payload as well as fragmentation of a NAL unit into multiple RTP packets. Furthermore, it supports transmission of an HEVC bitstream over a single stream as well as multiple RTP streams. When multiple RTP streams are used, a single transport or multiple transports may be utilized. The payload format has wide applicability in videoconferencing, Internet video streaming, and high-bitrate entertainment-quality video, among others.
RFC8088 - How to Write an RTP Payload Format
This document contains information on how best to write an RTP payload format specification. It provides reading tips, design practices, and practical tips on how to produce an RTP payload format specification quickly and with good results. A template is also included with instructions.
RFC8130 - RTP Payload Format for the Mixed Excitation Linear Prediction Enhanced (MELPe) Codec
This document describes the RTP payload format for the Mixed Excitation Linear Prediction Enhanced (MELPe) speech coder. MELPe's three different speech encoding rates and sample frame sizes are supported. Comfort noise procedures and packet loss concealment are described in detail.
RFC8331 - RTP Payload for Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) ST 291-1 Ancillary Data
This memo describes a Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) payload format for the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) ancillary space (ANC) data, as defined by SMPTE ST 291-1. SMPTE ANC data is generally used along with professional video formats to carry a range of ancillary data types, including time code, Closed Captioning, and the Active Format Description (AFD).
RFC8450 - RTP Payload Format for VC-2 High Quality (HQ) Profile
This memo describes an RTP payload format for the High Quality (HQ) profile of Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers Standard ST 2042-1, known as VC-2. This document describes the transport of HQ Profile VC-2 in RTP packets and has applications for low-complexity, high-bandwidth streaming of both lossless and lossy compressed video.
The HQ profile of VC-2 is intended for low-latency video compression (with latency potentially on the order of lines of video) at high data rates (with compression ratios on the order of 2:1 or 4:1).
