RE: Betacam SP Secam



The trick to using a PAL BetaSP deck for SECAM is to use an external decoder
to create the component signals.  The external decoder needs to be very good
at stripping off the subcarrier.
The problem with the internal decoder is it will not fully strip the PAL
subcarrier off the component signals.  This remaining subcarrier beats with
the SECAM FM modulation (very ugly!).
