NTSC & PAL are abbreviations for analog standard-definition TV broadcast standards. NTSC is a broadcast standard that runs at 30 frames per second and is the standard in the US, Canada, most of South America and several Asian countries, such as Japan and South Korea.

PAL is the TV broadcast system used throughout the rest of the world, including Europe, Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia and South America, and runs at 25 frames per second (very close to film speed which runs at 24 frames per second).

Today, many countries have switched, or are in the process of switching to digital broadcasting, thus formally and gradually replacing and ending the PAL & NTSC era.

While various specialized VHS & DVD players as well as TV sets, are capable of displaying both standards, in reality most aren’t, and will result in an inability to properly display and review tapes and discs, thus diminishing the results of preserving your family history.

One of the most important factors in NTSC and PAL conversions, is that not all converters and conversion processes are alike. In fact, they run the gamut, ranging from standard-quality processors that would result in relatively softer (blurry) image without motion correction, and all the way to very high-end convertors that yield very pristine and clear picture with very little image degradation.

At Advanced Media we offer various solutions for NTSC & PAL conversions, anywhere from standard to very high-end fitting broadcast. We believe in offering solutions and options for anyone seeking to preserve their family most unique history and memories. For broadcast purposes we use Teranex Converters with HD-SDI and SD-SDI connections.
