- 50P (Pal) is a frame rate of 50 frames per second and is associated with the PAL (Phase Alternating Line) television standard. 50P stands for '50 Progressive,' meaning means that each frame of the video is displayed progressively, one after the other, without interlacing.
- 60i (NTSC) is a video format with a frame rate of 60 fields per second (60i) that is associated with the NTSC (National Television System Committee) television standard. 60i stands for '60 Interlaced.'
