H Series ITU Recommendations
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
The H series recommendations are ITU standards that define audiovisual and multimedia systems. There are too many recommendations in the series to list here. A synopsis is given below. Refer to the ITU Web site listed on the related entries page for a complete list and description of each recommendation. H.323 is perhaps the most important H series recommendation. It describes voice and video (multimedia) over packets-switched networks (the Internet). See "H.323 Multimedia Conferencing Standard" for more information.
