PAL (Phase Alteration by Line) was developed in the 1960s by a German company named Telefunken. It was intended as a viable successor to the NTSC video encoding system, which revealed a number of shortcomings as colour broadcasting continued to develop.

The PAL format provides an automatic colour correction to solve an issue with NTSC’s ‘colour drifting’, a tonal shift that would occur alongside a weak signal transmission. This was a significant advantage for European consumers, considering the vulnerability of analog video signal to the less than ideal weather patterns in their region.

The format also provides a 20% increase in video resolution, which could facilitate greater detail in image integrity, but it would come at the cost of frame rate, running at 25 fps (frames per second), reduced from NTCS’s 30 fps. Format specific televisions and players are required to view compatible content, and the import of incompatible content yields distorted audio and video noise. However, as we’ve moved into the era of digital content many of these regional analog issues have become a thing of the past, and digital video content can be viewed almost universally across modern platforms.
