What does Pal mean on tv?
PAL is the color encoding method used in Europe and other parts of the world. North America, Japan and other countries use NTSC. Although the two encoding methods are similar, the signals are not compatible. A third color standard used by France is SECAM. SECAM is used in a handful of other countries but is not a common standard. PAL and SECAM encoded signals are normally used at 50Hz while NTSC normally uses 59.94Hz. There are some rare exceptions to these field rates but it is normally safe to assume that 50Hz material will be PAL encoded and 59.94Hz will be NTSC encoded.

Countries using pal format?
PAL is the color encoding system developed by the British and Germans. It differed from the American NTSC encoding system in several ways and the two are not directly compatible. Because of the British links to the rest of the world, most British colonies (currently or previously) use PAL. This now extends to most of Europe, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The Americas and the far East tend to be NTSC regions but for a full list, there are many web sites that show every country and the formats they use. France chose a different format when it began color broadcasts, known as SECAM. Although SECAM is still used for the final broadcast, all television production uses PAL format for ease of signal processing. The content is converted to SECAM for distribution to viewers. Several of the French colonies still use SECAM although the format is becoming less popular. With the advent of high definition television, PAL, NTSC and SECAM are no longer used. Each of them are color encoding systems for standard definition signals only and encoding for HD does not use them. However, HD is still often incorrectly referred to as PAL or NTSC. Partly, this is due to the fact that NTSC uses a 60Hz frame rate while PAL uses a 50Hz frame rate. The move to HD has retained the differing frame rates. HD PAL therefore is more properly known as 50Hz HD.
Asked in Home Electricity
Can you use your 240v 50hz tv in the USA using a step up transformer and if you could will it be bad for the equipment?
The outlet isn't the only problem here. Before the DTV switchover there were three standards for televisions: NTSC, PAL and SECAM. NTSC was in the US and Korea, PAL in most of Europe, SECAM in France, Russia and the Middle East. Unless you had a multisystem TV, you couldn't watch American TV on a German TV set. Now there are six different standards. I don't know why. It still means you can't watch TV in the US on a European TV set.

Asked in TV Programming and Commercials, France
Will a Canadian TV work on the power in France?
No. Canadian current is 115 volts 60 cycles, French is 230 volts 50 cycles. Also, Canadian televisions expect a NTSC analog signal or ATSC digital signal. France uses SECAM analog and DVB digital signals. So even if you could get power for the set, it wouldn't be able to view any French television signals.
What TV can you use in France and the UK?
For terrestrial analogue systems (while they still exist) the UK, like most of the rest of Europe, uses a system for encoding the colour called PAL (phase alternating line). The French, however, use a system called Secam (Sequence and memory). To a television receiver, the two systems are mutually incompatible, so unless you have a television that can switch between the types of signal, you will only be able to receive one or the other.
What is the thing that allows you to hook up your computer screen to TV or projecter called and where can you buy one?
You are looking for a "Scan Converter", a device that changes computer images in VGA,SVGA,XGA or XVGA format to video in NTSC, PAL or SECAM format. Extron Electronics in Anaheim, CA has several different versions. Assuming you are in the US, you'll want a unit that provides NTSC output and can be connected to the yellow video input jack on a TV or projector.

Asked in Electronics Engineering
What is digital and analog?
Analog TV: Analog (or analogue) television encodes television picture and sound information and transmits it as an analog signal: one in which the message conveyed by the broadcast signal is a function of deliberate variations in the amplitude and/or frequency of the signal. All systems preceding digital television, such as NTSC, PAL or SECAM are analog television systems. Digital TV: Digital television (DTV) is the sending and receiving of moving images and sound by discrete (digital) signals, in contrast to the analog signals used by analog TV.
Asked in Television and Video, HDTV
Can you buy multi system full hd lcd TVs in the UK?
The majority of UK televisions will now handle multiple standards. The UK colour standard is PAL while the US uses NTSC. Similarly, UK uses 50Hz field rates compared to 60Hz in the US. It is common for UK televisions to be able to handle 60Hz. Most will decode NTSC. It is important to check that NTSC and 60Hz broadcast frequencies are supported before buying. The only way to check is to read the manual or speak to the manufacturer. Sadly, most in store salesmen will not be able to answer the question and whatever the answer might be in store, it cannot be taken as gospel. Some warnings: A UK television taken to the US is unlikely to receive broadcast television. A television that handles NTSC will only play North American DVDs in conjunction with a DVD player that is not region coded. Finally, while almost the whole world uses either PAL or NTSC, France and a handful of other countries uses a colour encoding system called SECAM. Few televisions and video processors will handle SECAM so if the intention is to replay French content, selecting the right television may prove more challenging.
Is PAL and NTSC and SECAM still an issue with high definition televisions?
PAL, NTSC and SECAM are color encoding systems and are used for composite or S-video standard definition signals. Component signals do not rely on any of the color encoding systems. As HD signals are component, they do not use the color encoding methods. However, this doesn't mean that signals are universally compatible. The regions that use NTSC also use a field rate of 59.94Hz while PAL regions operate at 50Hz. The move to high definition has not changed the frequencies in use in these regions. High definition has at least standardized the resolutions to 720 line and 1080 line. Many HD televisions will now handle either field rate so many of the problems of PAL - NTSC compatibility have faded away in recent years. Despite this, most commercial content on DVD is coded to prevent them being used outside their own region. North American DVDs for example generally cannot be played on a European DVD player. It is safe to say that although the technical issues of color encoding have largely been overcome, commercial issues have created new but similar difficulties in transfer of video content around the world.
