PAL not being the standard video format for North America can make viewing a lot of content or material in PAL a problem. The format standard, which involves 625 interlaced lines and 25 fps, isn’t compatible with many TVs and DVD players in North America. However, video conversion of today can make these resources easily available in multiple formats with remarkable crispness, color, resolution and smooth motion..
Video PAL conversions are handled by preservation and retrieval specialists with expertise in varying format standards, like PAL, NTSC and SECAM. When conversion specialists receive PAL analog or digital tapes, or files, they ensure every frame is verified for detail, quality and consistency and use state-of-the-art technology to get a clean transfer.
Extensive techniques used in video PAL conversions, including full-bandwidth 12-bit motion compensation and specialized software, can cleanly convert a wide range of currently-used frame rates from the most challenging source footage while avoiding shimmer, stutter and interpolation effects typical of poorly converted frame rates and resolutions.
Re-aspecting in real-time, such as 4:3 to 16:9, along with pan-and-scan-based conversions is also possible.
