The purpose of this ITU-T Recommendation is to define the Generic Multimedia Conversational Service and to describe their general features, regardless of the network environment in which these services are provided. These services allow conversational communication between two users in two different locations. The Generic Multimedia Conversational Services are one of the generic service types identified in ITU-T Recommendation F.700, and their description follows the methodology described therein.
Multimedia refers to content that uses a combination of different content forms. This contrasts with media that use only rudimentary computer displays such as text-only or traditional forms of printed or hand-produced material. Multimedia includes a combination of text, audio, still images, animation, video, or interactive content forms.
