    I have a DVD we made at work that is in what I assume to be NTSC format. The problem is that we have a bunch of pilots coming down from Australia who want a copy of the dvd. Can I just burn the dvd as normal and hope their DVD players will play the movie, or do I have to somehow convert the thing to PAL format?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Chances are quite high that Australian PAL DVD players and TVs can handle NTSC also - as do most European systems. But if you do want to transcode it to NTSC something like Procoder does a pretty good job.

    Yes I knew this much. I was just wondering if I would have to convert it or if their equipment will work using NTSC

    As Mark said, most tv's will take NTSC as well as the Australian standard PAL, so just copy as normal - no need to convert the disc.
