RTP: Audio and Video for the Internet provides a framework for delivery of audio and video across IP networks with unprecedented quality and reliability. Comprehensive, exceptionally clear, and replete with examples, this book is the definitive RTP reference for every audio/video application designer, developer, researcher, and administrator.
By bringing together crucial information that was previously scattered or difficult to find, Perkins has created an incredible resource that enables professionals to leverage RTP's benefits in a wide range of Voice-over IP (VoIP) and streaming media applications. He demonstrates how RTP supports audio/video transmission in IP networks, and shares strategies for maximizing performance, robustness, security, and privacy.
Key coverage includes:
RTP's goals, design philosophy, and relationships with other protocols
The psychology of human perception in the design of media delivery systems
RTP data transfer and control protocols, including framing, loss detection, reception quality feedback, and membership control
Media playout, timing, and synchronization, including lip synchronization
Mitigating network problems: error concealment, error correction, and congestion control
Optimizing performance over low-speed links: header compression, multiplexing, and tunneling
Integrating leading media codecs and standards into RTP systems
Securing RTP sessions: encryption, authentication, and the new secure RTP profile for wireless networks
Extensive references and practical examples throughout
