The authorative reference is the ITU-R BT.470-6. In table 2, table item 2.11
for NTSC: for PAL (B, D, G, H, I, K, N) for PAL (M) for PAL (M combi)
455 1135 1 909 917 1
f = --- f f = (---- + ---)f f = ---f f = (--- + ---)f
SC 2 H SC 4 625 H SC 4 H SC 4 625 H
where f is (in table 1)
f = -------- f = 15625 f = 15625 f = 15625
H 1001 H H H
I'm not covering SECAM here thought...
Notice that Note 1 in table 1 needs to be read in order to read the correct
value. The ratio-notation is not used in BT.470, but is used in other NTSC
