  • PAL and NTSC are Not as much to do with your game or console as it is your TV. Here is a C/P that will explain it.

    Most of us would not be able to recognize the difference between NTSC and PAL, but then again most of us aren't television broadcast engineers. The differences really start with the electrical power system behind the transmissions. In the United States and other countries, electrical power is generated at 60 hertz, so for technical reasons the NTSC signal is also sent out at 60 'fields' per second. Since most televisions use an interlaced system, this means that 30 lines of the image are sent out, followed by the alternating 30 lines. This line alternation happens so fast that it becomes undetectable, much like a film running through a projector. The result for an NTSC television is 30 frames of a complete image appearing every second.

    Since Europe uses a 50 hertz power supply, the equivalent PAL lines go out at 50 fields per second, or 25 alternating lines. PAL televisions only produce 25 complete frames per second, which can cause some problems with the proper display of motion. Think of it as the 'silent movie effect', in which the actors seem to move a little faster because there are fewer frames showing movement. If a PAL movie is converted to an NTSC tape, 5 extra frames must be added per second or the action might seem jerky. The opposite is true for an NTSC movie converted to PAL. Five frames must be removed per second or the action may seem unnaturally slow.

    Another difference between NTSC and PAL formats is resolution quality. PAL may have fewer frames per second, but it also has more lines than NTSC. PAL television broadcasts contain 625 lines of resolution, compared to NTSC's 525. More lines usually means more visual information, which equals better picture quality and resolution. Whenever an NTSC videotape is converted to PAL, black bars are often used to compensate for the smaller screen aspect, much like letterboxing for widescreen movies.

    When the NTSC format was first adopted in 1941, there was little discussion of color transmissions. When the technology for color television arrived, engineers had to create a broadcast method which would still allow owners of monochrome television sets to receive a picture. Color signals on the NTSC format are still not considered ideal by electronics experts. The PAL system, on the other hand, was created after the advent of color broadcasting, so color signals are much truer to the original image.
