Frequency Allocation

This appendix provides information on broadcast and cable television NTSC and PAL/SECAM standards and frequencies used around the world.

There are three standards for transmitting video. They are defined by the method of encoding color onto a monochrome signal. The methods are defined as:

  • NTSC—National Television System Committee.

NTSC is the current standard used for analog television in the United States and elsewhere. NTSC supports color television transmission in a 6 MHz channel bandwidth and has 525 interlaced scan lines. Two fields are interlaced to make one frame with a frame rate of 29.97 frames per second and a field rate of 59.94 fields per second. A fraction (~8%) of the available bandwidth is used for signal synchronization between the transmitter and the receiver giving an effective resolution of 640x480. The aspect ratio, or ratio of picture width to picture height, is 4:3.

  • PAL—Phase Alternating Line.

PAL is a composite color system similar to NTSC. In PAL, however, the color difference signals alternate phase at the horizontal line rate. PAL video consists of a 625-line frame, a frame rate of 25 Hz, and a field rate of 50 Hz. As with NTSC, ~8% of the available bandwidth is used for synchronization yielding an effective resolution of 768x576. The aspect ratio is 4:3. The PAL standard and it's variants are used primarily in Europe, China, Asia, Africa, Australia, Brazil, and Argentina.

  • SECAM—SEquential Couleur Avec Memoire.

SECAM is a color television broadcasting system using 625 picture lines and a 50-hertz (Hz) field rate, in which the two color-difference signals are transmitted sequentially instead of simultaneously.

General NTSC information is covered in Table C-4 and Table C-5 . General PAL/SECAM information is covered in Table C-7 . Use the information in Table C-1 , Table C-2 , and Table C-3 to compare analog television standards used around the world.

Standards Comparisons

The following tables ( Table C-1 , Table C-2 , and Table C-3 ) include data from Recommendation ITU-R BT.470.6, Conventional Television Systems (1998) and provide a comparison of the different standards.

PAL/SECAM Cable Television Channels and Relative Frequencies

Table C-7 provides information on the Phase Alternating Line (PAL) and SEquential Couleur Avec Memoire (SECAM) frequency map for standard 7and 8 MHz channel bands in Europe.

The FCS (reference subcarrier frequency) for color integration is different for different countries. As well, the channel/frequency designations is different for different countries. For a summary of the ITU designations for PAL/SECAM systems and Recommendation ITU-R BT.470.6 standards, refer to Table C-1 , Table C-2 , and Table C-3 . These tables provide general information that may help determine frequency allocations for specific countries. Table C-7 is a frequency allocation table for PAL B and G locations. Also note that some countries use different schemes for VHF and UHF. Table C-8 is a frequency allocation table for PAL D and K locations for the People’s Republic of China.

More information can be found at the Web sites listed on page E-1.


NoteThe downstream frequency plan will include all center frequencies between 112 and 858 MHz on 250 kHz increments. It is up to the operator to decide which frequencies to use to meet national and network requirements
