Re: Betacam SP Secam


Betacam SP is a Analogue Component format, so the stuff recorded on tape is
not either PAL or SECAM, but a Component 625/50 format. When the tape plays
back then the encoder in the VTR would then encode the playback video into
either PAL or SECAM. We used to even have some of our SP's modified to
provide 4:2:2 Digital Component directly.

This means that there should be no difference between a PAL and SECAM SP tape.

PS. I am not affiliated with Sony, or the guy that invented PAL or SECAM,
or 4:2:2 or email software.
