The system is designed for use in an automobile to allow viewing on a video screen. The SDB performs the required signal transmission and operates in conjunction with the two CS’s that allow passengers to control the system’s functions. There are also optional components that can be used in conjunction with this system and these are identified as additional control stations (CS), signal distribution box source cables (SDBSC), a master control station (MCS), and a game control station (GCS).

The applicable subheading for the signal distribution system, Model SDB45, will be 8525.10.3040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other transmission apparatus.
