A/324: ATSC Candidate Standard: Scheduler / Studio to Transmitter Link

Approved 30 September 2016. The CS period ends 31 July 2017.

This document specifies the protocol on the Single Frequency Network (SFN) interface from studio side infrastructure to SFN of transmitters. The document also defines possible interfaces among the studio infrastructure, for example the interconnection of the ATSC Link Layer Protocol (ALP) and a Broadcast Gateway. This document specifies certain constraints on the scheduling of content and signaling on the physical layer. The described scheduling process enables preamble generation and emission time management. It specifies certain aspects of transmitter behavior and certain parameters of transmitter operation with protocols over a Studio-to-Transmitter (STL) link.
