Recommendation ITU-T P.1301 concerns subjective quality assessment of telemeeting systems that provide multiparty communication between distant locations, using audio-only, video-only, audiovisual, text‑based or graphical means as communication modes. The term multiparty refers to more than two meeting participants who can be located at two or more than two locations.

Evaluation of those systems can focus on audio-only, video-only, or audiovisual quality aspects and non-interactive or conversational quality can be assessed.

This Recommendation gives an overview of relevant aspects that need to be considered for subjective quality evaluation of multiparty telemeetings and it provides guidance to Recommendations describing the details of applicable methods and procedures. Aspects in this Recommendation are also applicable to two-party telemeetings.
