DVD-ROM Drive Information
(on selected models)
The DVD-ROM drive allows you to view and create your own CDs and DVDs. You
can purchase an optional DVD viewer software to view DVD titles.
Regional Playback Information
Playback of DVD movie titles involves decoding MPEG2 video, digital AC3 audio
and decryption of CSS protected content. CSS (sometimes called copy guard) is
the name given to the content protection scheme adopted by the motion picture
industry to satisfy a need to protect against unlawful content duplication.
Although the design rules imposed on CSS licensors are many, one rule that is
most relevant is playback restrictions on regionalized content. In order to facilitate
geographically staggered movie releases, DVD video titles are released for specific
geographic regions as defined in “Region Definitions” below. Copyright laws require
that all DVD movies be limited to a particular region (usually coded to the region at
which it is sold). While DVD movie content may be released for multiple regions, CSS
design rules require that any system capable of playing CSS encrypted content must
only be capable of playing one region.
IMPORTANT! The region setting may be changed up to five times using the viewer
software, then it can only play DVD movies for the last region setting. Changing the
region code after that will require factory resetting which is not covered by warranty. If
resetting is desired, shipping and resetting costs will be at the expense of the user.

Internal Modem Compliancy
The ASUS Transformer Book Trio with internal modem model complies with JATE
(Japan), FCC (US, Canada, Korea, Taiwan), and CTR21. The internal modem has
been approved in accordance with Council Decision 98/482/EC for pan-European
single terminal connection to the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
However due to differences between the individual PSTNs provided in different
countries, the approval does not, of itself, give an unconditional assurance of
successful operation on every PSTN network termination point. In the event of
problems you should contact your equipment supplier in the first instance.
134
ASUS Transformer Book Trio E-Manual
Overview
On 4th August 1998 the European Council Decision regarding the CTR 21 has
been published in the Official Journal of the EC. The CTR 21 applies to all non
voice terminal equipment with DTMF-dialling which is intended to be connected
to the analogue PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network).
CTR 21 (Common Technical Regulation) for the attachment requirements for
connection to the analogue public switched telephone networks of terminal
equipment (excluding terminal equipment supporting the voice telephony
justified case service) in which network addressing, if provided, is by means of
dual tone multifrequency signalling.
Network Compatibility Declaration
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the Notified Body and the vendor:
“This declaration will indicate the networks with which the equipment is designed
to work and any notified networks with which the equipment may have interworking difficulties.”
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the user: “This declaration will
indicate the networks with which the equipment is designed to work and any
notified networks with which the equipment may have inter-working difficulties.
The manufacturer shall also associate a statement to make it clear where network
compatibility is dependent on physical and software switch settings. It will also
advise the user to contact the vendor if it is desired to use the equipment on
another network.”
Up to now the Notified Body of CETECOM issued several pan-European approvals
using CTR 21. The results are Europe’s first modems which do not require
regulatory approvals in each individual European country.
Non-Voice Equipment
Answering machines and loud-speaking telephones can be eligible as well as
modems, fax machines, auto-dialers and alarm systems. Equipment in which the
end-to-end quality of speech is controlled by regulations (e.g. handset telephones
and in some countries also cordless telephones) is excluded.

1 National requirements will apply only if the equipment may use pulse dialling
(manufacturers may state in the user guide that the equipment is only intended to
support DTMF signalling, which would make any additional testing superfluous).
In The Netherlands additional testing is required for series connection and caller
ID facilities.
