SMPTE 2110 Normative References


This document lists the normative references of the SMPTE 2110 suite of standards from SMTPE that define the transport of professional video over IP networks. The purpose of this list is to capture and illustrate to the IETF reader the dependencies and diversity of needs that the standards in this suite have on the work of the IETF.

This document is being discussed on the mailing list.

2. Introduction

The SMTPE 2110 suite defines the use of IP networks for professional video production. It is built upon a variety of standards and protocols from a variety of organizations including AES, IEEE, and the IETF. Given the IETF's role in definining standards for IP networks and transport protocols, the 2110 suite is heavily dependent on IETF RFCs.

The normative list of IETF standards upon which SMPTE 2110 depends upon is list below. The actual list is much greater as the fundamental IP network upon which 2110 runs depends on an extensive list of RFCs. The ones specificall cited here are those RFCs which are cited explicitly by the 2110 suite documentation.

The 2110 suite is an important set of standards which are used by professional video environments including production of broadcast news, sports, as well as TV shows.
