Abstract

This memo specifies an RTP payload format for encapsulating uncompressed High Definition Television (HDTV) as defined by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) standard, SMPTE 292M. SMPTE is the main standardizing body in the motion imaging industry and the SMPTE 292M standard defines a bit-serial digital interface for local area HDTV transport.

Abstract

   This memo specifies an RTP payload format for encapsulating

   uncompressed High Definition Television (HDTV) as defined by the

   Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) standard,

   SMPTE 292M.  SMPTE is the main standardizing body in the motion

   imaging industry and the SMPTE 292M standard defines a bit-serial

   digital interface for local area HDTV transport.

1.  Introduction

   The serial digital interface, SMPTE 292M [1], defines a universal

   medium of interchange for uncompressed High Definition Television

   (HDTV) between various types of video equipment (cameras, encoders,

   VTRs, etc.).  SMPTE 292M stipulates that the source data be in 10 bit

   words and the total data rate be either 1.485 Gbps or 1.485/1.001

   Gbps.

   The use of a dedicated serial interconnect is appropriate in a studio

   environment, but it is desirable to leverage the widespread

   availability of high bandwidth IP connectivity to allow efficient

   wide area delivery of SMPTE 292M content.  Accordingly, this memo

   defines an RTP payload format for SMPTE 292M format video.
