Hat tip to @mathew - I just learned that France had a graeter than 720i broadcast standard in the 1940s!

That's Astounding.

I gotta find some old french gear, I guess.


@ajroach42 @mathew I'd be curious to learn more about this. The first person I thought of was @jelora. I know he posts a lot of older tech from that region.

There was a 819 lines b&w standard that existed in France between 1949 and 1983
