Convert PAL to NTSC
If you’re not sure what PAL is, trust us when we say you’re not alone. After all, unlike VHS, VHS-C, Hi8, Video8, Digital8, MiniDV, MicroMV Betamax and U-matic, it’s not an actual video format, rather a standardized viewing format that allows video tapes to play in specific regions. It’s the same concept of why your Sprint iPhone won’t play on AT&T’s network. It’s provider locked or in the case of PAL, region locked. Think of it as a foreign language that your American tapes just don’t speak.
Here’s how it works. Most video tapes from the UK, Europe, Asia, and Australia use PAL (Phase Altering Line), transmitting 25 frames per second with each frame comprised of 625 individual scan lines. In the Americas, we use NTSC (National Television System Committee), transmitting 30 frames per second with each frame comprised of 525 individual scan lines. As you can see, they’re not quite speaking the same language.
So if you studied abroad back in college or lived overseas for a stint, then chances are strong that you bought and/or recorded a few tapes from a foreign country that just won’t play. But we can help give you the key to unlock your memories!
With our PAL to NTSC conversion service, our studio technicians can transfer your tapes, every bit of footage, without losing any quality. Our process includes going through each tape you send (using our roundtrip pre-paid postage) by hand, frame by frame until it’s all converted. In fact, it’s the same process employed by the Academy of Motion Pictures because quality is everything and that’s been a pillar of our brand and legacy for more than a century.
After the transfer process is complete, we’ll send you back your foreign tapes in addition to the digital thumb drive, DVD or cloud service so you can relive your memories from around the world all over again.
