Is There Such A Thing As Ntsc Bluray?

Question

Hi

 

I am sending a bluray disc of a film to USA and the film festivals have a note of NTSC Bluray.

 

I thought first that Toast 11 Pro creates a region free disc.

 

Also a 1920 x 1080 HD film is neither Pal nor Ntsc.

 

Is there something specific about bluray players in USA which will not read a Bluray burnt in UK from a pal .mov file?

 

 

 

Many Thanks to any experts who understand this query.

It's probably the frame rate that's the difference. Your video is probably 25 fps while the ones in the US are either 24 fps or 30 fps. Whereas UK players are set up to handle the differences, most US player are not.

Is this something I can change when burning a bluray? I use toast 11 pro.

My understanding is there is no such distinction and my earlier post was a stab at guessing why your Blu-ray disc didn't play in the U.S. I've done some checking and there shouldn't be an issue. You are correct that Toast discs are all-region so that isn't a factor. Tell me more about the specs of your video. Does the Blu-ray disc play on your player? What were you told happened when they tried to play it in the U.S.?

Just told me they had problems. Not very helpful I'm afraid. I've tried to track down some sort of specification but I've not found anything helpful.

 

An NTSC Bluray seems like the Unicorn possibly mythical but maybe not.

 

I presume none of the tech experts from Roxio look at these questions!

 

Thank you.

NTSC and PAL are analog television systems. Blu-ray doesn't conform to either.
