ST 2110

Standards for Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks that specify the carriage, synchronization, and description of separate elementary essence streams over professional internet protocol (IP) networks in real-time for the purposes of live production, playout, and other professional media applications.

ST 2110-10

Standard for System timing and synchronization (SMPTE ST 2059 parts 1 & 2 alignment of real-time signals and Precision Time Protocol (PTP))

ST 2110-20

Standard for Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP)-based transport of uncompressed active video essence over IP networks.

ST 2110-21

Standard for Traffic Shaping and Delivery Timing for uncompressed video.

ST 2110-30

Standard for Uncompressed PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) Digital Audio (AES67), specifying real-time RTP-based transport of uncompressed digital audio essence over IP networks.

ST 2110-31

Standard for AES3 Transparent Transport, which is referenced to a network reference clock.

ST 2110-40

Standard for Ancillary (ANC) Data, (based on ST 291-1) specifying real-time, RTP payload based transport of ANC Data packets related to video data streams.


Request for Comment (RFC) which defines a scheme for packetizing uncompressed video streams for transport using RTP.


Standard for transporting audio over IP networks.




ST 2022-1

Forward Error Connection (FEC) for 1G (low bit rate) Real-Time video/audio transport over IP networks.

ST 2022-2

Packetization standard for constant bit rate, compressed video signals encoded within MPEG-2 tranpsort streams over IP networks.

ST 2022-5

FEC for 10G (high bit rate) video streams with bit rates up to 3Gbps using the RTP protocol on IP networks. FEC is most commonly required on metro and carrier (long distance) links, or on copper connections.

ST 2022-6

Packetization standard for high bit rate signals (up to uncompressed 3Gbps 1080p video) over 10G IP network using the RTP protocol.

ST 2022-7

Seamless Protection Switching standard which defines how two identical streams are sent simultaneously over redundant IP links, and are then recovered by the receiver which can switch automatically between the two streams reconstructing a perfect video signal. Used to add redundancy in networks to increase robustness and works as long as both streams do not fail simultaneously.

ST 2022-8

New standard (originally planned as ST 2110-50) based on Video Services Forum (VSF) TR-04 which defines interoperability with ST 2022-6 streams.




ST 2059-1/2

The standards, based on IEEE 1588, that allow accurate time synchronization of media streams over IP Networks.



TICO compression developed by intoPIX is an open compression standard defined under SMPTE RDD35 (Registered Disclosure Document 35). It provides visually lossless, low latency compression / decompression without degrading the video quality over multiple iterations.


Defines the packetization of constant bit rate MPEG-2 video transported over low bit rate (1G) IP networks.


VC-2 Visually Lossless, low latency codec is based on wavelet technology and defined under ST 2042.


JPEG2000 Lossless wavelet compression standard developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG). Widely used in digital cinema and for higher compression rates - over 1G network for example.
