The system uses an MMT (MPEG Media Transport) digital container standard to transmit multiple channels. Coding and decoding of 22.2-multi channel audio will be performed using the MPEG-4 AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) standard. Video and audio will be modulated using the 16APSK (Amplitude and Phase Shift Keying - transmission of 4 bits of information through the use of 16 amplitudes and phase shifts) scheme and will be transmitted at roughly 100Mbps.
