When playing our photo VCD on TV, we need to make sure we are using NTSC or PAL TV standard.

The NTSC (National Television Standards Committee) was responsible for developing a set of standard protocol for TV broadcast transmission and reception in the United States. The NTSC standard for television defines a composite video signal with a refresh rate of 60 fields (half-frames interlaced) per second. Each frame contains 525 lines and can contain 16 million different colors. The resolution of an NTSC VCD is 352x240 pixels, an NTSC SVCD is 480x480, and an NTSC full D1 DVD is 704 or 720 x 480.

PAL (Phase Alternating Line) is the dominant TV standard in Europe. PAL delivers 625 lines at 50 fields (half-frames interlaced) per second. The resolution of a PAL VCD is 352x288 pixels, a PAL SVCD is 480x576, and a PAL full D1 DVD is 704 or 720 x 576.
