H.323 is an ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) recommendation that describes protocols for the provision of audio-visual (A/V) communication sessions on all packet networks. H.323 provides standards for equipment, computers and services for multimedia communication across packet based networks and specifies transmission protocols for real-time video, audio and data details.
H.323 is widely used in IP based videoconferencing, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Internet telephony. Users can communicate through the Internet and make use of a variety of products that are H.323 standard compatible.
