Conversion of European Standard PAL Tapes

Converting PAL Tapes to Digital File In Broadcast Television there are different standards for different parts of the world. In the US the standard was known as NTSC, which in Hi-Def is no longer used. Instead we use various frame rates such as 29.97, 23.98 and 30. In Europe and other parts of the world the broadcast standard was known as PAL, but is now know as 50i, as it runs 50 fields per second as PAL does with standard def. In post operations here in the U.S. there is often a call for PAL and/or 50i tape and digital recordings. We can take your old PAL tapes or newer 50i tapes and digitize or convert them to digitial files such as quicktime. These files would have the 50 field (or 25 frames) per second that the standard demands. We can digitize the following PAL / 50 formats

  • HDCAM SR
  • HDCAM
  • D5
  • Digi-Beta
  • Betacam SP
  • DVCAM
  • DVC Pro
  • Mini DV
  • Hi 8 / 8mm
  • 3/4"
  • VHS"
