This document specifies the packetization scheme for encapsulating
the compressed digital video data streams commonly known as "DV" into
a payload format for the Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP).
This document specifies payload formats for encapsulating both
consumer- and professional-use DV format data streams into the Real-
time Transport Protocol (RTP), version 2 . DV compression audio
and video formats were designed for helical-scan magnetic tape media.
The DV standards for consumer-market devices, the IEC 61883 and 61834
series, cover many aspects of consumer-use digital video, including
mechanical specifications of a cassette, magnetic recording format,
error correction on the magnetic tape, DCT video encoding format, and
audio encoding format . The digital interface part of IEC 61883
defines an interface on an IEEE 1394 network [2,3]. This
specification set supports several video formats: SD-VCR (Standard
Definition), HD-VCR (High Definition), SDL-VCR (Standard Definition -
Long), PALPlus, DVB (Digital Video Broadcast) and ATV (Advanced
Television). North American formats are indicated with a number of
lines and "/60", while European formats use "/50". DV standards

extended for professional use were published by SMPTE as 306M and
314M, for different sampling systems, higher color resolution, and
faster bit rates [4,5].
There are two kinds of DV, one for consumer use and the other for
professional. The original "DV" specification designed for
consumer-use digital VCRs is approved as the IEC 61834 standard set.
The specifications for professional DV are published as SMPTE 306M
and 314M. Both encoding formats are based on consumer DV and used in
SMPTE D-7 and D-9 video systems. The RTP payload format specified in
this document supports IEC 61834 consumer DV and professional SMPTE
306M and 314M (DV-Based) formats.
IEC 61834 also includes magnetic tape recording for digital TV
broadcasting systems (such as DVB and ATV) that use MPEG2 encoding.
The payload format for encapsulating MPEG2 into RTP has already been
defined in RFC 2250  and others.
Consequently, the payload specified in this document will support six...
