Does anyone know if Digital TV will do away with the differences between
NTSC and PAL?
The core difference from my view point with NTSC vs PAL was cost. Part of
the world wanted predictable colors and liked the PAL model. The others
wanted to sell a product at a much lower cost and so went with NTSC (never
the same color). The cost issues are gone now, but back in the 50's the
cost difference was a few hundred dollars.
Will Digital TV eventually be a "universal standard" ?
There are many digital standards used in the TV studios. The broadcast
format appears to have gelled into a single standard driven by the
economics of the TV manufacturers.
