Indeed.  To make the picture even more complete: RFC 2733 and the ULP  
draft are also encumbered, see declaration #339.

As advances in pervasive computing, wireless communication and sensor
networks continue, more opportunities are open to first responders and
critical infrastructures to benefit from these technologies. Providing
first responders with the best possible technology, infrastructure and
services help save the lives of the general public and the  first
responders as well. One of the main challenges to the operations of first
responders and critical infrastructures is to deploy a communication
network that is dependable, secure, and rapidly deployable. In order to
operate effectively, the deployed network supports services such as
location determination, audio and video communication, and in site and

	Title		: RTP Payload Format for ATRAC Family

	Date		: 2006-12-1
	
This document describes an RTP payload format for efficient and
   flexible transporting of audio data encoded with the Adaptive
   TRansform Audio Codec (ATRAC) family of codecs.  Recent enhancements
   to the ATRAC family of codecs support high quality audio coding with
   multiple channels.  The RTP payload format as presented in this
   document also includes support for data fragmentation, elementary
   redundancy measures, and a variation on scalable streaming.

	Title		: Codec Control Messages in the RTP Audio-Visual Profile with Feedback (AVPF)

This document specifies a few extensions to the messages defined in
   the Audio-Visual Profile with Feedback (AVPF).  They are helpful
   primarily in conversational multimedia scenarios where centralized
   multipoint functionalities are in use. However some are also usable
   in smaller multicast environments and point-to-point calls. The
   extensions discussed are H.271 video back channel, Full Intra
   Request, Temporary Maximum Media Bit-rate and Temporal Spatial Trade-
   off.

Draft AVT minutes

Sorry to take so long. There are still some rough spots people might 
fill in. Anyway, here they are.

The Audio-Video Transport (AVT) Working Group met twice. The originally
scheduled meeting was on Tuesday morning, Nov. 7. An additional meeting
was necessary to complete the agenda and specifically to consider
proposals for transport of keying and control information along the 
media path. The second meetingt was held on Thursday afternoon, Nov. 9, 
from 3:10 to 4:10 pm.

Thanks for these - some minor comments/correction below.

I assume it's the "a=source-filter:" attribute [RFC 4570].

WGLC Request for CCM and Topologies drafts

Folks,
the authors would like to request last-calling

- draft-ietf-avt-avpf-ccm-03.txt, and
- draft-ietf-avt-topologies-03.txt

Both drafts have been stable for quite a while.  Recently, we  
incorporated all the comments received on the list, and in private by  
Colin, Roni, and Mark Handley.

The CCM draft is normatively referenced in 3GPP SA4's Multimedia  
Telephony Over IMS specification draft (TS 26.114).  This is 3GPP  
Release 7 specification work, and a citable reference by May 2007  
would be most appreciated.  Topologies are normatively referenced in  
the CCM draft; therefore, the two should be moved forward  
simultaneously.

Best regards,
Stephan

Source Code for BroadVoice BV16 speech codec


  Hi,

   I am an engineer interested in the BV16 codec source code. In one of your
mails you have mentioned that the 

  source code is available for licensing. Is that the fixed point
version?Can you please tell me where I can find it. I beleive that the
floating point version is royalty  free. I haven't been able to get hold of
that either..

 I wasn't successful in getting any information from Packet cable..

 Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated..

 thank you
 regards
Navitha
