TipsAbout DVD Video (NTSC)(.*vob) and DVD Video (PAL)(.*vob)

NTSC and PAL belong to the two major television broadcasting systems in the world, but they project different frequencies. NTSC is the abbreviation of National Television System Committee. Its standards are mainly used in Japan, the United States, Canada, Mexico, etc., while PAL is the abbreviation of Phase Alternating Line, which is mainly used in China, Hong Kong, the Middle East and Europe. These two systems are not compatible with each other. If you play NTSC video on a PAL TV, the screen will become black and white, and vice versa.

Compared with NTSC, PAL has higher definition, more precise colors and higher contrast. But the splash screen occurs obviously, the double-frequency scanning TV excluded, and the dark details are black.

However, in contrast with PAL, NTSC displays better dynamic effects and stronger image layering, obvious dark parts and fewer splash screens. But NTSC cannot display the precise colors and easily show the white points.
