  SECAM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
SECAM (Sequentiel Couleur avec Mémoire, French for "sequential color with memory") is an analog television system, using frequency modulation to encode chrominance information.
SECAM was introduced in France in 1967, where it is still used; it has also been adopted in many former French colonies, as well as parts of Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, Hungary) and the former Soviet Union.
Political factors from the Cold War have also been attributed to the adoption of SECAM in Eastern Europe, as its use made it impossible for most Eastern Europeans to view television which was broadcast from outside the Iron Curtain which were mostly using PAL.

Secam admits the allegations in Paragraph 1, with the exception that Secam does not have information sufficient to admit or deny whether Shockoe is still properly licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia and accordingly denies only that allegation in Paragraph 1.
Secam admits the allegations in Paragraph 7, with the exception the Secam denies the reference to "notwithstanding the terms of the lease", because as stated in the Crossclaim, this was not the understanding between the parties.

 Pal Secam NTSC World Standards Conversion Transfer Convert
SECAM was developed in France and is used in France and it's territories, much of Eastern Europe, Russia, the Middle East and northern Africa.
SECAM was not developed for any technical reason of merit (as was PAL) but was mainly invoked as a political statement, as well as to protect the French manufacturers from stiff foreign competition.
SECAM equipment; televisions in particular, are quite expensive, since the economic efficiencies of high volume mass production and competitive market forces could never be realized.

 secam
Afrer the Council, the Symposium of the Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) was inaugurated on the occasion of the first pastoral visit of Pope Paul VI to Uganda (the first ever by a Pope), in 1969.
SECAM has a Standing Committee composed of the President, two vice-presidents and a member from each of the nine Regional Associations of Episcopal Conferences.
The members of SECAM are the National Episcopal Conferences and the Regional Associations of these Conferences of Africa and Madagascar, the members from Africa on the Council of 24 of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, all Cardinals and Patriarchs of Africa and members of the Standing Committee of SECAM.

 Sceam - Secam   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
SECAM was born out the will of young African Bishops during the Council Vatican II (1962-1965).
SECAM is the result of their resolution to build up a continental structure in order to bring forth the African vision to the Church.
While giving answers to the questionnaire sent to them on the restructuring of SECAM (theme of the next Plenary Assembly), the Episcopal Conferences reaffirmed their wish to see SECAM preside over charity on the continent.

 TSP-06 Broadcast SECAM>PAL Transcoder   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The SECAM signal is decoded using precision filtering, with colour transient suppression to ensure maximum luminance bandwidth with minimum residual chrominance subcarrier.
The SPG sync pulse generator, which provides the reference to the PAL encoder, is sync and colour locked to the input SECAM signal, to ensure that there are no sideways shifts in the image if the PAL output signal is passed through a framestore synchronizer downstream of the TSP-06.
The SECAM composite input and looping output may be replaced by a single SECAM YC input, and the PAL composite outputs may be replaced by a single PAL YC output, if desired.

 SECAM - Uncyclopedia
SECAM is the French-language «système élégant contre les Américains», an incompatible television standard concocted by the French solely to annoy the United States for no good reason.
SECAM is a scam, but one with an extra E.
As the missing half of the couleur must be stored from the previous line of video and used in conjuction with DNA and dental records to reconstruct the picture, SCART and SECAM serve as non-tariff barriers to frustrate other countries attempting to export la télévision to France.

 VideoHelp.com :: View topic - PAL / SECAM confusion, Please help
The difference is in the analog domain, where the encoding of the color on top of the fl and white (remember color came along after fl and white and had to be added in so that there was some backward compatibility or it wouldn't have been accepted) is different.
SECAM is only really used for over-the-air transmission (even in the television studios, all the equipment is PAL, and the video is converted to SECAM just before it is transmitted), so it's not necessary for the DVD part.
It is certainly possible that there are SECAM tapes, since VHS tapes are analog, but it is my understanding that converting to/from SECAM and using PAL for the tape itself is more convenient for everyone (you can trade tapes with other countries, and they don't have to manufacture special versions for SECAM countries).

 NTSC vs PAL v SECAM
SECAM is used in France and Russia, some Eastern European, and some African countries.
SECAM is very different and therefore is not as common in multi standard equipment.
PAL and SECAM share the same scanning format, so discs are the same for both systems.

 SECAM modulator (US4145711)
Apparatus for forming a color TV signal of a SECAM type from a pair of correlated color-difference signals (R-Y; B-Y) includes a pair of transistors disposed in a differential amplifier configuration, with a constant current source coupled to interconnected emitters, and a load impedance coupled to one collector.
In several illustrative applications, a synchronizing system using single reference is effective, during initial portion of horizontal sync interval, in adjusting VCO output to reference frequency.
During terminal portion of horizontal sync interval, VCO output is shifted to a frequency midway between the two SECAM resting frequencies.

 TPS-01 Broadcast PAL>SECAM Transcoder
Before transcoding, the PAL signal is first decoded to luminance and colour difference signals (YC), using precision filtering to ensure maximum residual chrominance subcarrier.
This gives excellent signal characteristics with greater bandwidth and lower noise than with conventional RGB transcoding, and provides a lower cost solution in situations where comb filtering is not justified.
There are two composite SECAM outputs, each with SECAM identification "bottles" in the vertical interval (which can be disabled), making the TPS-01 ideal for use in systems where there may be older TV receivers / monitors which require these for correct synchronisation.

 What is NTSC, PAL and SECAM
SECAM (Sequential Color Memory) is used sparingly around the world and can be found in France, parts of Greece, Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa and a few other parts of the world.
However, any SECAM country can display PAL tapes in full color, but not all PAL countries can display all SECAM tapes in color.
North America uses NTSC, Europe uses PAL and SECAM, and South America uses PAL-M, PAL-N, PAL and NTSC.

 TV Systems: A Comparison
Stable Hues and Constant Saturation - SECAM shares with PAL the ability to render images with the correct hue, and goes a step further in ensuring consistant saturation of colour as well.
Mixing of two synchronous SECAM colour signals is not possible - Most TV studios in SECAM countries originate in PAL and transcode prior to broadcasting.
Incompatibility between different versions of SECAM - SECAM being at least partially politically inspired, has a wide range of variants, many of which are incompatible with each other.

A friend told me SECAM was similar to PAL so try the same method, but I don't think this will work.
But, if you have an analog SECAM source, like a video tape, you need to capture it with a capture card set to SECAM.

 Ed Ellers' Critique of World TV
This wasn't as great an issue as it may seem, since most of the Warsaw Pact countries along the old "iron curtain" used systems D and K, which were already incompatible with their Western neighbors' systems.
What happened is that VHS uses a drastically different recording system for SECAM, at least in France, than is used for PAL or NTSC -- instead of hetrodyning the subcarrier down to its lower frequency for recording, the FM subcarrier is divided by four and then multiplied back up in playback.
There used to be two different color sync techniques for SECAM, one using a burst on each line (like PAL or NTSC) and the other using a special waveform transmitted during field blanking, but the latter has apparently disappeared because those lines were needed for teletext.
