SECAM

Short for SIquentiel Couleur @ Mimoire (Sequential Color with Memory), SECAM is a color TV standard that was introduced in the early 1960 in France. SECAM uses the same resolution as PAL (625 lines) but transmits the color information sequentially: R-Y on one line and B-Y on the next. SECAM is used sparingly around the world and can be found in France, parts of Greece, Eastern Europe, Russia, and Africa.
