Most countries around the World use one of three main television broadcast Standards. These three main standards are NTSC, PAL and SECAM.

However, each standard is incompatible with the other. For example, a video recording made in the UK could not be played on US standard VCR's or shown on the TV. The charts below show which standard each country supports. All countries not listed use PAL.

For a more in depth look at the technical aspects of world television standards, take a look at this website: Worldwide TV Standards - A Web Guide

The Bodyharmonics Centre does not offer videos in SECAM standard. If you are ordering a video from a country that uses SECAM please see the website listed above or your local VCR shop to check the compatibility.
