Abstract

   This document describes the RTP payload format for Enhanced Variable
   Rate Codec (EVRC) Speech and Selectable Mode Vocoder (SMV) Speech.
   Two sub-formats are specified for different application scenarios.  A
   bundled/interleaved format is included to reduce the effect of packet
   loss on speech quality and amortize the overhead of the RTP header
   over more than one speech frame.  A non-bundled format is also
   supported for conversational applications.
