VHS Tape Lengths

Both NTSC and PAL/SECAM VHS cassettes are physically identical (although the signals recorded on the tape are incompatible). However, as tape speeds differ between NTSC and PAL/SECAM, the playing time for any given cassette will vary accordingly between the systems.

In order to avoid confusion, manufacturers indicate the playing time in minutes that can be expected for the market the tape is sold in. It is perfectly possible to record and play back a blank T-XXX tape in a PAL machine or a blank E-XXX tape in an NTSC machine, but the resulting playing time will be different from that indicated. (Note: SP = Standard Play, LP = Long Play (1/2 speed) for both NTSC and PAL regions.( (EP/SLP = Extended Play/Super Long Play (1/3rd speed) for NTSC regions. PAL does not have an EP/SLP speed.)
