The Media Resource Control Protocol Version 2 (MRCPv2) allows client
hosts to control media service resources such as speech synthesizers,
recognizers, verifiers, and identifiers residing in servers on the
network.  MRCPv2 is not a "stand-alone" protocol -- it relies on
other protocols, such as the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), to
coordinate MRCPv2 clients and servers and manage sessions between
them, and the Session Description Protocol (SDP) to describe,
discover, and exchange capabilities.  It also depends on SIP and SDP
to establish the media sessions and associated parameters between the
media source or sink and the media server.  Once this is done, the
MRCPv2 exchange operates over the control session established above,
allowing the client to control the media processing resources on the
speech resource server.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
