How to convert from PAL into NTSC color system?

Friday, April 29th, 2011

PAL and NTSC are two different video formats used by different countries and regions of the world. NTSC is mainly used in the US, Japan and Canada, while PAL is used in Europe and Africa. Most of the times, a DVD video in one format cannot be played on a player on the other format. If you don’t trust the source of your DVD, it can be very easy to associate the problem to an empty or corrupted DVD, but the truth is that you are actually trying to marry two incompatible video formats. A common problem for Americans for example is that they purchase a DVD Player which plays only NTSC movies. When they get a hold of a PAL DVD, they simply can’t use it on their player system.

DVD video producers make their DVD movies according to regions of the world and this is how they classify them. DVD players made for one region cannot be expected to work when used in a different region. This incompatibility often results in pictures appearing in black and white when they should be in color. The culprit to this is using a DVD player specifically manufactured for one format to play a DVD disc that supports a different format.

It might happen that you have recorded a home DVD-video disc but your DVD player or TV set does not support the color system used to record the video on the disc and cannot playback it. If you still want to watch the video you can try and reconvert it from one color system to another using AVS Video Converter. (more…)
