Annex C
Classification Code Matrix
The EIT will carry DVB parental_rating_descriptor (with the tag of 0x55 as outlined in EN 300 468 [13])
alongside with the country code “SGP”. The rating value (parental rating code) carried by this descriptor is
associated with the matrix table shown below for on-screen display and channel block.
Where the broadcasted rating value is not classified (grey area), the DVB-T2 IRD shall interpret the
rating to be the next higher classification. Example: If 0x05 is transmitted, it shall be treated as 0x0A
(PG13). (By choosing a higher classification, it gives better protection in case the intent is to transmit a
higher classification.)
Grey fill area are reserved for future use. (E.g. New classification/rating in future will be fitted into the
grey area.)
Reference to the above Yellow Box:
The column “Parental Rating Code” (Hex code) is transmitted together with the television program.
DVB-T2 IRD should be able to identify the assigned hex code according to the classification code.
Example: When user selects to block PG13, programs with classification Undefined, General (G) and
Parental Guidance (PG) are allowed to display on screen while programs with classification PG13,
NC16, M18 and R21 are blocked from viewing until the user entered the pin to unblock the program.

The DVB-T2 IRD shall support EPG presentation signalled with ENG,
ZHO and MSA by offering a means to select the EPG language.
It is optional to support EPG presentation signalled with TAM.
When EPG data is offered in multiple languages, it is recommended
that the DVB-T2 IRD provides an easy to use option to allow the user
to select the language for EPG presentation.
When the user preferred language for EPG presentation does not
match any languages that are available, the DVB-T2 IRD is
recommended to select the language of the First EPG data (Short
Event Descriptor) appeared in the descriptor loop of the of the Event
Information Table (EIT).
It is recommended to allow the user to toggle the languages when
viewing the EPG presentation.

Audio Description (AD)
The requirement to support audio description in receiver-mix mode
for multi-channel receiver has been amended as “Optional” in view
that there is no immediate plan to implement audio description in
receiver-mix mode. Nevertheless, AD in Broadcast-mix mode is
supported by both stereo and multi-channel receivers.
The following text is included to give clarity on the method for
transporting of the audio description between HE-AAC and DD+:
The audio description service shall be provided as an associated
service in a separate stream encoded with the same audio codec as
used for the main program.
In case of the use of E-AC3 as audio codec, the mixing data shall be
included as part of the E-AC3 bit stream as defined in ETSI TS 102

Existing reference to the ETSI TS 101 154 v1.10.1 (2011-06) has
been updated with the latest version v.1.11.1 (2012-11) for use of
video and audio coding in broadcasting applications based on the
MPEG-2 transport stream. This latest version provides clarity to the
metadata used in the multi-channel audio.
15 Mar 2013
As revisions to the ETSI TS 101 154 have been developed largely in
