The Code Point Registry is intended for authors, regulators, and users of the ATSC 3.0 suite of Standards. It is intended to ensure harmonization of code points in specifications that rely on fields defined in ATSC Standards. To meet this goal, a database of code points has been created called the “Code Point Registry.”
The Registrar is the ATSC Staff. Inquiries and requests for registration should sent by email to email@example.com. Registration requests should include the ATSC Standard number, the fieldname, the requested values (each with a short description), a link or pointer to a publicly available specification defining the syntax and semantics, organization name, and a contact name and email address. Unless explicitly stated otherwise in an ATSC Standard, code points are not assigned to individuals or commercial companies.
Code points are eligible for assignment only if the text of the ATSC Standard that defines the field explicitly states that values can be defined by other documents and informatively cites the Code Point Registry.
This Registry is informative only; for each value it refers to the appropriate ATSC Standard or authoritative industry specification that defines that value.
A separate Registry is provided for legacy (ATSC 1.0) code points. This document is provided as an archive reference. Updates are not anticipated.
