HEVC Video Constraints for Cable Television Part 1- Coding

This document defines the coding constraints on ITU-T Rec. H.265 | ISO/IEC 23008-2 video compression (hereafter called "HEVC") for Cable Television. In particular, this document describes the coding of a single HEVC coded video elementary stream carried in MPEG-2 transport (ISO/IEC 13818-1) for linear delivery systems supporting ad insertion services. Beyond linear delivery with DPI, signaling is provided for segmentation of content for xDVR applications.
