ATSC Candidate Standards PDF Print E-mail

A Candidate Standard is a document that has received significant review within a specialist group. Advancement of a document to Candidate Standard is an explicit call to those outside of the related specialist group for implementation and technical feedback. This is the phase at which the specialist group is responsible for formally acquiring that experience or at least defining the expectations of implementation.

A/72 Part 3: "ATSC Candidate Standard – Video and Transport Subsystem Characteristics of MVC for 3D-TV Broadcast in the ATSC Digital Television System"

25 February 2014

This document describes the video coding constraints on Annex H of ITU-T Rec. H.264 | ISO/IEC 14496-10 ("MVC") video compression and the transport of the MVC video streams for 3D-TV broadcast in the ATSC Digital Television System.

A/103: ATSC Candidate Standard – Non-Real-Time Content Delivery

06 May 2014

This Standard describes the ATSC Non-Real-Time Content Delivery system, hereafter referred to as the ATSC NRT system or simply NRT. The NRT system provides support for delivery of content in advance of use (i.e., not streaming content). These ATSC-NRT services are carried in DTV broadcast multiplexes. The presence of these services do not preclude or prevent operation of current ATSC services in the same RF channel or have any adverse impact on legacy receiving equipment.

A/104 Part 3: ATSC Candidate Standard – 3D-TV Terrestrial Broadcasting, Frame Compatible Coding Using Real-Time Delivery

25 February 2014

This document provides detailed specification of the parameters of the Frame Compatible 3DTV system using Real-Time (FCRT) delivery including the video encoder input scanning formats and the service multiplex and transport layer characteristics and normative specifications.

A/104 Part 5: "ATSC Candidate Standard: 3D-TV Terrestrial Broadcasting, Part 5 – Service Compatible 3D-TV using Main and Mobile Hybrid Delivery"

26 February 2014

This document provides detailed specification of the parameters of the Service Compatible 3D-TV using Main and Mobile Hybrid Delivery (SC-MMH) which is one particular case of the Service Compatible 3D-TV system using Real-time Delivery (SCRT). This specification includes the stereoscopic video formats, the service multiplex and transport layer characteristics, and normative/informative specifications.

A/104 Part 6: "ATSC Candidate Standard – 3DTV Terrestrial Broadcasting, Part 6 – Independent Coded 3D Using Real-Time Delivery"

26 June 2014

This document provides detailed specification of the parameters of the Independent Coded 3D (IC3D) using real-time delivery This specification includes the video encoder input scanning formats, the service multiplex, transport layer characteristics, and normative specifications.

A/105: ATSC Candidate Standard – Interactive Services Standard

24 April 2014

The ATSC 2.0 Interactive Services system allows the broadcaster to connect broadcast programming with additional services related to that programming. Central to this system are Declarative Objects (DOs) providing the user’s interactive experience. Changes to the life-cycle state of Declarative Objects (for example to launch or kill a DO) can be initiated and changed by both broadcasters and viewers. The system provides for the extension of these services to second screens and provides for delivery of needed resources via the Internet path. In addition to services already part of traditional terrestrial broadcast television, services described in the present standard include personalization, service usage reporting, receiver access to web-based servers, and support for automatic content recognition.

A/106: ATSC Candidate Standard – ATSC Security and Service Protection Standard

1 January 2014

This standard specifies the mechanisms for security and service protection in ATSC 2.0 systems.Prepared by the Specialist Group on Security (TG1/S7), the necessary building blocks are called out that will enable broadcasters to fully exploit the capabilities of digital broadcasting.

A/107: ATSC Candidate Standard – ATSC 2.0 Standard

06 may 2014

This document is a top-level specification of the ATSC 2.0 fixed-broadcast digital television services, which augment the digital television services defined in ATSC A/53. As a top-level document this standard references other ATSC standards as well as standards developed by other organizations.
