television systems in most of the part of the world.
Used on 50Hz frequency it is an analogue system. Pal
standard was introduced in 1967. Famous countries where
PAL standard is used are India, China, Pakistan, Nepal,
and Indonesia. It delivers 625 lines per second.
NTSC Standard- It delivers 525 lines. United States
and Japan are the main countries where NTFC standard
is used. It provides a composite video signal in which
all the colors are present.
Due to inappropriateness in these 2 video standards,
video tapes of one region cannot be played on the television
of some other country. It means video tape of USA cannot
be played in India. The solution tot his problem is
to have VCR or TV which have an inbuilt PAL-NTSC converter
which is capable for converting PAL video tape to NTSC
Some VCRS have a built in pal-NTSC converter and some
buy separate stand alone converter. If your multi-system
VCR does not have a converter, you should have a multi-system
television so as to play the tape.
