Foreword

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) has been produced under the authority of the Joint

Technical Committee (JTC) of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the European Telecommunications

Standards Institute (ETSI), it was prepared by the Taskforce 16:9 of the PALplus group after consulting both the

EBU V/EPS and EBU/V2 groups.

This ETS defines the Wide Screen Signalling (WSS) information for 625 line PAL and SECAM television

systems.

NOTE: The EBU/ETSI JTC was established in 1990 to coordinate the drafting of European

Telecommunication Standards in the specific fields of radio, television and data
broadcasting.

The EBU is a professional association of broadcasting organizations whose work includes

coordination of its Members activities in the technical, legal, programme-making and

programme-exchange domains. The EBU has active members in about 50 Countries in
the European Broadcasting area; its headquarters is in Geneva *.

Introduction

For a smooth introduction of new television services with a 16:9 display aspect ratio in PAL and SECAM

standards, it is necessary to signal the aspect ratio used together with some switching information to the

television receiver. The receiver should be capable of reacting automatically to this information by displaying the

video information in a specified aspect ratio. This signalling is to be considered separately from the type of

system used, but it should allow transmission of system related switching information as well.

This ETS permits the later allocation of additional switching information, related to the introduction of enhanced

television services.

This ETS is applicable for 625 line PAL and SECAM television systems, but there is potential to adopt it to other

standards as well.

1 Scope

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) is applicable to 625 line PAL and SECAM systems in use, in

case, where wide-screen signalling is required by the broadcasters.

It specifies the wide screen signalling information, the coding and the way of incorporating the coded information

into a 625 line system.

The wide screen signalling information contains information on the aspect ratio range of the transmitted signal

and its position, on the position of the subtitles and on the camera/film mode. Furthermore some bits are

reserved for future EDTV signalling (e.g. PALplus) as well as for future use.

This ETS specifies the transmitted signal. Annex A gives the rules of operation for the minimum requirements

for receiver display formats as well as for subtitling.
2 Normative references

This ETS incorporates by dated and undated reference, provisions from other publications. These normative

references are cited at the appropriate places in the text and the publications are listed hereafter. For dated

references, subsequent amendments to or revisions of any of these publications apply to this ETS only when

incorporated in it by amendment or revision. For undated references the latest edition of the publication referred

to applies.

line 50Hz processing".
