ITU-T SG16 would like to inform you that we have approved the 2nd edition of ITU-T H-series Supplement 19 on “Usage of video signal type code points” at our current meeting. This supplement was developed in collaboration with ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 11 (MPEG) and is anticipated to also be published as the second edition of ISO/IEC TR 23091-4. This document is written to provide information to help the producers of various content processing tools to avoid processing mistakes that can cause video quality degradation due to having incorrect assumptions made about video property combinations. The document tabulates and discusses video signal property description code points and their combinations that are widely used in production and video content workflows. Code points and their combinations are described along with the way these are handled in bitstreams encoded using AVC (Rec. ITU-T H.264 | ISO/IEC 14496-10) and HEVC (Rec. ITU-T H.265 | ISO/IEC 23008-2). The relationship of the code points to the coding-independent code points (CICP) standard (Rec. ITU-T H.273 | ISO/IEC 23091-2) is discussed. The corresponding indicators in IMF (SMPTE ST 2067 series) and MXF (SMPTE ST 377-1) file exchange formats are also described. Common examples of uses of Mastering Display Colour Volume (e.g., per SMPTE ST 2086) are included. In this new edition, the document adds tables to describe the carriage of these combinations in baseband transmissions. A new combination describing usage of ICTCP was added to the HDR-WCG table. Additionally, 4000 cd/m2 mastering display information was added to the MDCV table and the table was split into two tables for HDR mastering displays and SDR mastering displays. Two new informative annexes were added. The first annex describes commonly used video property combinations that are not specified in industry standards. The second annex indicates the relevance of the system identifier tags in consumer distribution specifications. Additional general refinements were also included to improve readability and clarity and improve the use of terminology. The pre-published version of the approved text of the 2nd edition is attached. We would welcome your comments on this new publication and input toward potential development of subsequent editions.
