The International Telecommunications Union -- Telecommunications Standardization Sector (ITU-T) is responsible for generating worldwide "recommendations" (non-binding standards) for telecommunications. The ITU- T is divided into fourteen Study Groups. Each Study Group studies "questions" (i.e., topics for study); the results of their study define these recommendations. Study Group XVI is responsible for generating recommendations for data collaboration and videoconferencing. The following summarizes salient recommendations for multimedia communications produced by Study Group XVI.
