I never knew you could do that. Im gonna try and pick one up now.


They've been around for over 2 years but I haven't been able to start
until just recently when I moved. No one likes lugging tapes around.

Just keep in mind the standard.

UK = PAL

US = NTSC


I still have old PAL tapes from England and I'm pretty hosed trying to convert those to DVD.

I have never seen a NTSC in my life, but I know NTSCs are different due to the plug socket shape.

The cassettes are the same size, the VHS PAL tapes I have are the same size as the NTSC.

What you may be thinking of is the power plug and corresponding power socket.
That doesn't matter, what Cyantist needs to be concerned with is that he will need
a PAL video standard deck, regardless of power source.

You use 220Vac, in the USA it is 120Vac. That's just power. I can buy a PAL format
deck here that runs off 120Vac but it's not cost effective as I only have a few PAL tapes.

PAL is the video standard, the technical details of the signal, and stands for Phase Alternating Line.
It has to do with the 4.43MHz color subcarrier frequency of the standard, most widely
used in Europe back in the day of analog video transmission and processing.

You should never see an NTSC tape over there, and moving forward into HD data,
you actually shouldn't see *any* standardized tapes or signals at all.
