Description of Working Group:

The Audio/Video Transport Working Group was formed to specify a protocol
for real-time transmission of audio and video over unicast and multicast 
UDP/IP. This is the Real-time Transport Protocol, RTP, along with its 
associated profiles and payload formats.

RTP itself has been shepherded to Full Standard. Its associated
profiles, extensions, and payload formats are currently at various
levels of stardards maturity. This working group's current work
centers in four areas:

1) Maintenance of the core RTP/RTCP protocols and the AVP, SAVP, AVPF, 
   and SAVPF profiles

2) Specification and maintenance of payload formats for use with RTP

3) Specification of metric blocks for use with the RTCP Extended Report 
   (XR) framework

4) Extensions to the core protocols to facilitate joining,
   synchronizing, control, and monitoring of RTP multimedia
   sessions

In these areas, the group is chartered to focus on the following
tasks. Work supporting those areas, but not reflected in these
tasks must not be accepted by the working group without an explicit
re-chartering. In particular, new items supporting the fourth area
are expected to be reviewed in DISPATCH before being considered new
charter items for this group.

1) Maintenance of the core RTP/SRTP/RTCP protocols
   and the AVP, SAVP, AVPF, and SAVPF profiles
   - maintain and enhance the SRTP Profile, with review and input
     from the Security Area
   - specify how to use Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN)
     with RTP/RTCP
   - continue to investigate the export of summarized RTP/RTCP
     information for operations and monitoring purposes

2) Specification and maintenance of payload formats for use with RTP
   - provide guidelines for payload format design
   - develop payload formats for new media codecs
   - review and revise existing payload formats to advance those
     which are useful to Draft Standard or Standard, and to
     declare others as Historic.

3) Specification of metric blocks for use with the
   RTCP Extended Report (XR) framework
   - provide a mechanism allowing identification data for
     a set of related metric reports to be carried separately
     and identified in those reports by reference
   - provide report blocks for delay, delay variation, and discard
   - provide report blocks for burst/gap discard and loss
   - provide report blocks supporting rapid synchronization
     of multiple RTP streams
   - provide report blocks for jitter buffer metrics
   - provide report blocks for loss concealment metrics

4) Extensions to the core protocols to facilitate joining,
   synchronizing, control, and monitoring of RTP multimedia
   sessions
   - develop tools to support rapid acquisition of multimedia streams
   - specify necessary extensions to support rapid synchronization of 
     multiple RTP streams
