I just want to know the difference between PAL and NTSC
PAL, NTSC and SECAM Comparisons
See the link provided for technical specification differences...
is there any difference in video quality or colors?
I think NTSC uses 24 fps while PAL is 30 fps.
As regards DVD at least PAL has a higher resolution than NTSC. Dunno if that applies to TV & the like though.
It does apply to TV. NTSC is typically broadcast at 525 lines while PAL is typically 625. Not sure if this is still the case, but a while back it was said that HD broadcasts for PAL would be higher than HD broadcast in NTSC.
btw - I think it's important to add that Japan uses NTSC as well.
NTSC = 29.97 fps, typically referred as 30
PAL = 25 fps
Don't mix movie framerates with these. Those are sometimes 24 fps.
It's ridiculous how they come up with numbers such as 29.97 fps. Why don't they just use a whole number like 60 fps.
THNX guys....i wanted to know this because i wanna buy a Playstation2 but i dont know whether to buy a NTSC or a PAL system....i guess i should get a NTSC now..
Actually, there is an error in my previous post; quote says there's only one NTSC format. There are two: NTSC-M and NTSC-J, for Japan.
You don't really have a choice. You have to buy one that will work on your TV, and also PAL games will not work on an NTSC console & vice-versa.
Without a good mod-chip
