About the PAL
Standard Television Format
 
The PAL format (Phase Alternating Line) is the standard-definition television format for the countries of western Europe, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany and other countries. The PAL video format definition is 25 interlaced frames per second, 625 resolution lines per video frame. Home video products for use in Europe must be in the PAL format to properly display both picture and sound. Home video products from the United States, Canada or Japan are manufactured in the NTSC and SECAM television formats and will not properly image on PAL television systems.
