Standards Conversion and Master Conversion
Using Snell & Wilcox Broadcast Worlwide Standards Converter
to modify material from one region format to another guarantees
you excellent results every time
Why you need a standards conversion
PAL (UK format) has a screen size
of 720 x 520 lines and plays back video at 25 frames per second
NTSC (US format) has a screen size of 720 x 480 lines and
plays back video at 30 frames per second
In other words a PAL video will play too slow on a US video
machine and display a picture too large for the TV. This will
result in the video player showing a distorted image on screen
or vice versa on a UK video.
