Two Vidyo technologists, co-founder and chief scientist, Dr. Alexandros Eleftheriadis and Dr. Stephan Wenger, CTO of VidyoCast, the company’s broadcast division, were among the four co-authors of the “RTP payload format for Scalable Video Coding (SVC)" specification that was published as RFC 6190 in May.

The standard was developed by a group of experts in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), and defines how SVC is to be carried in the Internet over RTP (the real-time protocol used for video and voice). It will be used wherever SVC real time video is transported over IP-based networks, and is considered a significant document for ensuring interoperability of scalable video transmission next to the coding specification defined in the H.264 standard.
