This specification is an application standard identifying interfaces which can be selected for interconnections of digital video broadcast (DVB) equipment. The document identifies interface options, none of which are mandatory. If certain option is supported however, then the specification of that option must be followed. Interfaces not mentioned in this document are not to be excluded. As a first priority interfaces for analogue signals of integrated receiver decoders (IRDs) are specified. Future work also needs to be done to specify interfaces for digital signals, control signals, and interfaces for head-end equipment in CATV, SMATV, MATV, Radio, MMDS nd other posible future installations. For mechanical and electrical details of the interfaces, reference is made to existing standards of IEC or CENELEC wherever possible, or standards which are known to be in an advanced state of development.
