    3. DTT Network Deployment Brief

The network deployment in Portugal is done in 3 distinct networks:

• Portugal Mainland
• Autonomous Region of Azores
• Autonomous Region of Madeira

These 3 networks are deployed differently.

The service offer at mainland is set as five Standard Definition channels and one High Definition
channel.

At Azores and Madeira, the offer is increased by one Standard Definition channel plus the remaining
services offered on the mainland Mux.

On network set up, Azores is a set of MFN networks where each one of the networks is available in
different frequencies and with different parameters.




    4. Service Broadcast

The DTT service payload is composed for a set of data streams that at least must include the following
components:

        • One or more streams of video, in standard definition (SD) and /or high definition (HD);
        • One or more streams of audio, set as audio mono, stereo or with multiple canals (5.1);
        • One or more streams of data;
        • Signalling adjusted for seamless access to all the programs;
        • One or more interactive streams.

A user of the Portugal Telecom DTT network shall be able to access the programs, selecting the
logical channel number (LCN), as indicated in the chapter 6 and additionally, the receiver shall feature
the better quality stream that is broadcasted per program. This means that a receiver, in case of an
HD simulcast program, shall select the HD stream if the receiver is able to reproduce the HD stream.


        4.1     Video Characteristics

 The video program elementary stream fulfil all the requirements of the H.264/MPEG4 part 10
standard [13] available in the following profiles:

        High definition:

               H.264 HP@L4
               Variable Bit Rate with minimum of 1Mbps and maximum of 10Mbps
               Resolution 1920x1080i, 1440x1080i or 1280x720p


Signalling Specifications for DTT deployment in Portugal                                    page 4 of 27
        Standard definition, format 16:9 or 4:3:

               H.264 MP@L3
               Variable Bit Rate with minimum of 0,1Mbps and maximum of 10Mbps
               Resolution 750x576


The video stream can alternate format (16:9 or 4:3) at ant point of the transmission.
The receiver device once triggered by this event shall make the right display change.
The trigger to the receiver is according to standard AFD [11], indicated in chapter 5.
In case of multiple video streams per service it must follow the same rules.




        4.2 Audio Characteristics

The program audio elementary stream is distributed in mono, stereo or multi-channel (5.1). In
presence of audio 5.1 elementary stream the receiver shall make the downmix from 5.1 to stereo if no
5.1 output is active.


All the flows of audio must correspond to one of the following profiles:

       Mono or stereo, in MPEG 2 Layer [1]:

               Minimum bandwidth of 64Kbps and a maximum of 128Kbps in mono;
               Minimum bandwidth of 128Kbps and a maximum of 265Kbps in stereo;

   Multichannel 5.1 in a52 (Digital Dolby AC-3) [14]:

               Fixed bandwidth of 384Kbps;

   Mono, Stereo or multichanel in AAC-LC [15], AAC-HE V1 [16] or AAC-HE V2 [17]

               Minimum bandwidth of 16Kbps and maximum of 32Kbps in mono;
               Minimum bandwidth of 32Kbps and maximum of 128Kbps in Stereo;
               Minimum bandwidth of 128Kbps and maximum of 256Kbps in 5.1;

        4.3 Teletext

Although the future of teletext remains uncertain due to tha fact that there is no standard on how to
show telext on high definition interfaces, the teletext shall be supported for legacies devices and use
cases, in such a way that current users are not impaired by the analog shutdown.
The teletext services must follow the standard DVB Teletext [10].




        4.4 Subtitling

Subtitling functionalities may be present both embedded into the video, or on a separate stream. The
manner of including the subtitles onto the stream instead of embedding it on the video offers
significant advantages, from both the functionality and compression efficiency point of view.
This document only covers the DTB subtitles. Subtitles based on teletext may be also present, and
shall be supported as part of the teletext functionality.

 All subtitles based on DVB Subtitling [9] shall be supported. The signalling to use to identify the
subtitles is described in Chapter 6.



        4.5 Electronic Programming Guide

The Electronic Programming Guide (EPG), is a cornerstone feature on the DTT, and thus shall be fully
supported. For all events, programming information will be present for both the current event and the
following event (EIT p/f actual) up to the 15 following days (EIT Current Schedule). Information
regarding events in others multiplexers shall also be supported (EIT Schedule Others).
This information is according to the rules described on DVB PSI/SI [2].

The following set of information shall, in order to maximize user experience:

       Event Title, with a recommended maximum size of 50 characters;
       Short Event Description, with a maximum size of 250 characters, with a brief of the event.
        This field shall never be shown concatenated with the Event Description, as the text may be
        dupplicated;
       Event Description, with a recommended maximum size of 4000 characters;
       Parental Rating;
       One or more genre. Up to 10 shall be supported. The use of the thematic subjects is defined
        in Chapter 5.

It can however be broadcasted additional information as optional presentation on receiver, example:
year, actors, producers, country and others. This information must be present according to what is
defined on chapter 6.
The information of programs rating must be considered as essential. The available categories are
described in the Annex B. All the receivers shall have basic mechanisms restrict access according to
the rating defined per program.

    5. Additional Services

To guarantee the best user experience over the DTT ecosystem, other services can be deployed as
required by the content providers or the equipment manufacturers: software updates for DTT
receivers, interactive services or data broadcast services.




        5.1 Software update for DTT Receivers

In order to ensure that most DTT receivers have the longest lifespan possible, all DTT receivers shall
be able to receive software upgrades over the air. This will allow not only to bring required updates to
DTT receivers but also to add new functionalities to be made available on already existing DTT
receivers.
The software delivery shall rely on DVB-SSU [12] enhanced profile.

Since the amount and variety of receivers in the marketplace is something that is outside of the scope
of the network provider, the availability of software updates for most DTT receivers cannot be
guaranteed at all times, but can be scheduled, in such a way that both DTTuser or equipment can be
notified of the next scheduled broadcast.
This scheduling shall be agreed with the players on the marketplace that intends to enable this
process. Future releases of this document shall bring the identifications (OUI) of the eligible
manufacturers.




        5.2 Data Services


        To be specified on future releases.




        5.3 Interactive Services

        To be specified on future releases.

On the Azores islands, a different use case exists. On the Azores islands the DTT network is
composed of a series of different transmitters, but in some cases, the frequency assigned to a specific
island may not be the best frequency available due to propagation effects. To cover this case, on the
Azores island, the DTT receiver shall search initially for the proper frequency and after, search for
each frequencies present on the frequency_list_descriptor. Only the frequency with the best signal
reception shall be used for the service search.

           6.5. Specific Descriptors for DTT


           6.5.1 Logical Channel Number descriptor

PT as most DVB operators selected the logical_channel_descriptor to index the programs on DTT
mux (see IEC/CENELEC 62 216 - 1[8]).

The logical_channel_descriptor describer is defined as follows:




                Sintaxe                                 payload                               Tipo
Logical_channel_descriptor ()
{
       descriptor_tag                       8                                   uimsbf
       descriptor_length                    8                                   uimsbf
       for (i=0 ;i<N ;i++) {
              service_id                    16
              visible_service_flag          1                                   bslbf
              reserved                      5                                   bslbf
              logical_channel_number        10                                  uimsbf
       }
}

The syntax of this descriptor is the following:

descriptor_tag - Identification of the descriptor with value of 0x83;

service_id - Service_id of the service in the mux;

visible_service_flag - It identifies if the service must be visible for the users. It has the value of 1if it’s to
be visible, or 0 on contrary. This shall be the default value on operation.;

logical_channel_number – The channel number on the channel list.

            6.5.2 HD Simulcast Logical Channel Descriptor


In case there are services being broadcasted in SD and HD simultaneously (simulcast), the user shall
be able to access the best version of the service automatically.
For that purpose, if the receiver is HD capable, the receiver shall display the HD channel
automatically.
I order to accomplish that the descriptor HD_SIMULCAST_LOGICAL_CHANNEL_DESCRIPTOR was
created, to carry the information to the receiver that service are available also, in high definition.
This descriptor has the syntax description on IEC/CENELEC 62 216 - 1[8] and is exhibited below:




                         Syntax                               payload                    Type
HD_simulcast_logical_channel_descriptor()
{
        descriptor_tag                                8                        uimsbf
        descriptor_length                             8                        uimsbf
        for (i=0 ;i<N ;i++) {
               service_id                             16
               visible_service_flag                   1                        bslbf
               reserved                               5                        bslbf
               logical_channel_number                 10                       uimsbf
        }
}

The syntax of this descriptor is the following one:

descriptor_tag - Identification of the describer with value of 0x88;

service_id - Service_id of the program in multiplexer;

visible_service_flag – Once flagged (set to “1”) the service is visible for the end users. This shall be
the default value on operation.

 logical_channel_number – Channel number on channel list. This descriptor identifies the logical
channel number that must swaped by the one defined on the service id, according to the following
conditions:

           The receiver is HD capable, and configured to display HD ouput;

Signalling Specifications for DTT deployment in Portugal                                   page 17 of 27
       The receiver finds a program where both logical_channel_number (exhibit above) and
        logical_channel_number (see exhibit 5.5.1) have the same value.
