PALsite has expanded from it's begining as Betamax PALSite to include V2000 PALSite, U-matic PALSite, and Betacam PALSite. All based on the same style we hope that these resources will prove a valuable source of information and contacts about the various formats.

PALsite is the prodigy of Alan Barnett and Martin Evans. It has been built up over time and is dedicated to supporting and promoting the PAL video format. All original material is © Alan Barnett and Martin Evans unless stated otherwise and should not be used without permission.

Betamax PALsite first went on line in April 1997 at http://www.dickie.demon.co.uk/betamax/ and shortly afterwards moved to http://www.elektratec.demon.co.uk occupying webspace donated by Elektratec and Bob Armstrong. In December 1998 PALsite moved to it's own domain and became www.PALsite.com and www.PALsite.org. In september 1999 www.PALsite.co.uk was also aquired.

U-matic & Betacam PALSites are brought to you with support from LRC Video.

The Chat Pages were originally hosted by Chat-Page.co.uk but in August 2015 was rewritten by Martin and is now hosted within PALsite.com
