A standard-based video communication system combining video coding, packetization, and transport protocol environment is introduced. Rather than focusing on the specific areas mentioned above, the strength of the introduced concept lies in the novel combination of the various tools, especially in a rate-distortion optimized H.263 video coder that takes packet loss into account, and the packetization based on the Internet RFC2429. Together, both mechanisms form a powerful platform for low-latency, RTP-based video transmission in packet lossy environments with typically large packet sizes, and packet loss rates of up to 20%
