The Avro specification requires that character strings be stored as UTF-8 encoded character data. Although the Teradata Database does not support UTF-8 on the server side, it stores Avro character strings as such. When exporting a JSON-encoded Avro value, the Teradata UNICODE character set is used.

CSV values are stored in the same character set that was specified for the DATASET value.
