IEC 60728-113:2018 PRVEdition 1.0 (2018-04-27) Cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services - Part 113: Optical systems for broadcast signal transmissions loaded with digital channels only

This Final Draft International Standard is an up to 6 weeks' pre-release of the official publication. It is available for sale during its voting period: 2018-04-27 to 2018-06-08. By purchasing this FDIS now, you will automatically receive, in addition, the final publication.

IEC 60728-113:2018 is applicable to optical transmission systems for broadcast signal transmission that consist of headend equipment, optical transmission lines, in-house wirings and system outlets. These systems are primarily intended for television and sound signals using digital transmission technology. This document specifies the basic system parameters and methods of measurement for optical distribution systems between headend equipment and system outlets in order to assess the system performance and its performance limits. In this document, the upper signal frequency is limited at about 1 000 MHz. For systems requiring more bandwidth, refer to IEC 60728-13-1. The purpose of this part of IEC 60728 is to describe the system specifications of FTTH (fibre to the home) networks for digitally modulated broadcast signal transmission. This document is also applicable to broadcast signal transmission using a telecommunication network if it satisfies the optical portion of this document. This document describes RF transmission for fully digitalized broadcast and narrowcast (limited area distribution of broadcast) signals over FTTH, and introduces xPON system as a physical layer media. The detailed description of the physical layer is out of the scope of this document. The scope is limited to RF signal transmission over FTTH, thus, it does not include IP transport technologies, such as IP Multicast and associate protocols. Some interference descriptions between the telecommunication system and the broadcast system are addressed in Clause 7.

IEC 60268-4:2018 Edition 6.0 (2018-09-12) Sound system equipment - Part 4: Microphones
(Note: a redline version of this publication existsIEC 60268-4:2018 RLV)

specifies methods of measurement for the electrical impedance, sensitivity, directional response pattern, dynamic range and external influences of sound system microphones, and also details the characteristics to be specified by the manufacturer. It applies to sound system microphones for all applications for speech and music. It does not apply to measurement microphones, but it does apply to each audio channel of microphones having more than one channel, for example for stereo or similar use. It is also applicable to flush-mounted microphones and to the analogue characteristics of microphones with digital audio output. For the purposes of this International Standard, a microphone includes all such devices as transformers, pre-amplifiers, or other elements that form an integral part of the microphone, up to the output terminals specified by the manufacturer. The major characteristics of a microphone are considered in Clauses 6 to 21. Additional characteristics are considered in Annex A and Annex C.

IEC 62106-3:2018 Edition 1.0 (2018-09-26) Radio data system (RDS) - VHF/FM sound broadcasting in the frequency range from 64,0 MHz to 108,0 MHz - Part 3: Usage and registration of Open Data Applications (ODAs)

defines the Open Data Application (ODA) feature of the Radio Data System (RDS). The ODA feature in essence allows raw data to be transmitted via a transparent data channel from a service provider to a suitably equipped receiver without there being any prior knowledge of the data content by the IEC 62106 standard. This document defines the method of packaging the data within the RDS group structure and the identification of the data (using the Application Identification, AID) such that it can be addressed by an appropriate decoder on the receiver.
IEC 62106-3:2018 together with IEC 62106-1, IEC 62106-2, IEC 62106-4, IEC 62106-5 and IEC 62106-6, cancels and replaces IEC 62106:2015, and constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 62106:2015:
•    Provision has been made to carry RDS on multiple data-streams (RDS2).
•    For Open Data Applications, in addition to the already existing 37-bit and 21-bit data group structures a new 56-bit or 7-byte data group structure has been added.
•    New are AF coding below 87,6 MHz (down to 64,1 MHz) using ODA-AID. RT+ can now be used with RT and eRT, 0x6365, see IEC 62106-6.

 
 

IEC 62106-4:2018 Edition 1.0 (2018-09-24) Radio data system (RDS) - VHF/FM sound broadcasting in the frequency range from 64,0 MHz to 108,0 MHz - Part 4: Registered code tables

provides a number of tables for use in the implementation of the RDS system. This document specifies the procedure for registering a new value in an existing table or the registration of a new table.
IEC 62106-4:2018 together with IEC 62106-1, IEC 62106-2, IEC 62106-3, IEC 62106-5 and IEC 62106-6, cancels and replaces IEC 62106:2015, and constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 62106:2015:
•    Provision has been made to carry RDS on multiple data-streams (RDS2).
•    The country identification table has been updated by adding some countries.
•    Translated PTY terms for 20 languages have been added.

 
 

IEC 62106-5:2018 Edition 1.0 (2018-09-24) Radio data system (RDS) - VHF/FM sound broadcasting in the frequency range from 64,0 MHz to 108,0 MHz - Part 5: Marking of RDS receiver devices

defines receiver profiles and criteria that can be used for marking RDS receiver devices.
IEC 62106-5:2018 together with IEC 62106-1, IEC 62106-2, IEC 62106-3, IEC 62106-4 and IEC 62106-6, cancels and replaces IEC 62106:2015, and constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 62106:2015:
•    provision has been made to carry RDS on multiple data-streams (RDS2);
•    a logo for RDS2 has been added,
•    new are receiver profiles, conformity requirements, certification and compliance test.

 
 

IEC 62106-6:2018 Edition 1.0 (2018-09-26) Radio data system (RDS) - VHF/FM sound broadcasting in the frequency range from 64,0 MHz to 108,0 MHz - Part 6: Compilation of technical specifications for Open Data Applications in the public domain

contains the technical specifications for Open Data Applications in the public domain. This document is maintained by the RDS Forum Office. The RDS Forum Office applies an easy procedure for registering new Open Data Applications, to ensure that they can be used without the need to change the RDS standard. The ODA feature permits defining new applications that can be decoded on a receiver. The receiver needs to the adequate software handler for the specific AID, which identifies the application. Receivers that have not implemented the software handler needed for decoding are not affected by ODA data received for any of the applications already defined and specified.
The procedure for registering a new ODA is described in IEC 62106-3.
IEC 62106-6:2018 together with IEC 62106-1, IEC 62106-2, IEC 62106-3, IEC 62106-4 and IEC 62106-5, cancels and replaces IEC 62106:2015, and constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 62106:2015:
•    Provision has been made to carry RDS on multiple data-streams (RDS2);
•    New are AF coding below 87,5 MHz (down to 64,0 MHz) using ODA-AID 0x6365;
•    RT+ can now be used simultaneously for RT and eRT, each having its own RT+ ODA;
•    Data-streams 1, 2 and 3 are exclusively UTF-8 coded. For backwards compatibility, UCS-2 encoded eRT on data-stream 0 is retained.
