"NTSC to SECAM Conversion"
WHAT IS IT?
NTSC is the American TV standard. DVD discs are sometimes available
only in this format initially, before release in Europe. American NTSC
uses different colour encoding and frame rate (60 frames per second instead
of 50 frames per second).
However, many TVs will cope with the difference in frame rate and display
NTSC with a stable picture but without colour.
To view NTSC video in colour it is only necessary to convert the colour
from NTSC to SECAM without changing frame rate.
Colour conversion as offered by the Original ACE
is then sufficient. (Please note that both ACEs work with Chipped DVDs.)
Video recorders will not usually tolerate the different frame rate
so recording is not possible without full standards conversion.
In this case or if your TV does not show a stable picture with NTSC then
you need our new Full World Standards Convertor.
WHERE DOES THE "ACE" FIT IN?
The ACE fits quite simply between your DVD player and your video display
and automatically handles conversion of NTSC colour to SECAM colour when
required, enabling the discs to be viewed properly in full colour. SECAM
discs will still play correctly. The Colour Balance control automatically
acts as a NTSC HUE control to allow you to obtain the correct colour rendering.
All other controls act as normal and allow you to control the picture in the
usual way. Simple isn't it!
The sophisticated technology used in the Original ACE
gives excellent quality conversion on stable sources such as analogue or
digital broadcast, Laserdisc, DVD or Digital Camcorders with performance
and facilities far beyond that offered by analogue converters.
For VCR sources or if you wish to record converted video then our
Full World Standards Convertor should be used.
This is the most flexible unit available on the market with full colour correction
at Only £299.95 in the UK!
