Next Generation Audio Carriage Constraints for Cable Systems: Part 3 –MPEG-H Audio Carriage Constraints

This standard is part of a suite documenting carriage constraints of Next Generation Audio (NGA) codecs in MPEG-2 transport systems and in MPEG DASH. This part of the standard, in conjunction with Part 1 [2], defines carriage of MPEG‑H Audio in MPEG‑2 transport systems and in MPEG DASH.

The descriptors necessary to signal MPEG‑H Audio in MPEG-2 transport systems are defined in ISO/IEC 13818‑1 [4] and ETSI EN 300 468 [5], and their usage is described in this document.

Multiplexing and transport for cable using MPEG-2 systems are defined in SCTE 54 [8]. Coding constraints for MPEG‑H Audio elementary streams are defined in SCTE 242-3 2017 [1].
