This question of PAL to NTSC is of great interest to us here in Thailand.
Along with our key competitors, we have established a reputation for the
best post-production in the region, and as a consequence we're now
beginning to attract a lot of interest from the Japanese because of the
huge cost differential -- but they broadcast in NTSC and most of the
other countries around here use PAL. Now, the theory is that it
shouldn't make any difference to our URSA Gold/Da Vinci Renaissance setup
