Internet Society Requests For Comment (RFCs)
This document extends the Forward Error Correction (FEC) header defined in [RFC2733] and uses this new FEC header for the FEC that is generated by the 1-D interleaved parity code from a source media encapsulated in RTP [RFC3550]. The resulting new RTP payload format is registered by this document.

RTP Payload Format for 1-D Interleaved Parity Forward Error Correction (FEC)
This document defines a new RTP payload format for the Forward Error Correction (FEC) that is generated by the 1-D interleaved parity code from a source media encapsulated in RTP. The 1-D interleaved parity code is a systematic code, where a number of repair symbols are generated from a set of source symbols and sent in a repair flow separate from the source flow that carries the source symbols. The 1-D interleaved parity code offers a good protection against bursty packet losses at a cost of reasonable complexity. The new payload format defined in this document should only be used (with some exceptions) as a part of the Digital Video Broadcasting-IPTV (DVB- IPTV) Application-layer FEC specification.
