MPEG DASH for IP-Based Cable Services Part 1: MPD Constraints and Extensions

This standard is part of a suite documenting usage of MPEG DASH in IP-based cable networks. It specifies restrictions on MPD and codecs that apply to both MPEG-2 TS and ISO-BMFF segments.

Thus, DASH/TS profile is a combination of part 1 (this standard) and Part 2 (which defines aspects specific to MPEG-2 TS), and, analogously, DASH/FF profile is a combination of Part 1 and Part 3 (which defines aspects specific to ISO-BMFF). The DASH/TS profile is also very similar to the adaptive transport stream source description defined in SCTE 215.
