Sequential Couleur avec Memoire (SECAM)

SECAM (Sequential Couleur avec Memoire) is the television display technology that is standard in France, the countries of the former Soviet Union, and certain other countries. It is one of the three world TV standards together with National Television Standards Committee (United States) and Phase Alternation Line (Europe other than France).

Like PAL, SECAM scans the cathode ray tube ( CRT ) horizontally 625 times to form the video image.
