Colour standards

Analogue TV sets, videodisks and videotapes exist in different standards:

· PAL is used in most of Western Europe, Africa and Latin Americas;
· SECAM is used in France, most of Eastern Europe and French Africa;
· NTSC is used in the USA, Canada, Japan.

Nowadays, most videotapes or disk players are multistandard; tapes can be converted from one standard to the other, disks as well but this is more expensive.
