This paper describes the integration of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) into end-to-end multimedia systems, formats, and protocols such as Real-time transport Protocol, the transport stream of the MPEG-2 standard suite, and dynamic adaptive streaming over the Hypertext Transport Protocol. This paper gives a brief overview of the high-level syntax of HEVC and the relation to the Advanced Video Coding standard (H.264/AVC). A section on HEVC error resilience concludes the HEVC overview. Furthermore, this paper describes applications of video transport and delivery such as broadcast, television over the Internet Protocol, Internet streaming, video conversation, and storage as provided by the different system layers.
