3-2 Pulldown
This process converts the 24 frames per second found on film, to the 30 frames per second necessary for display as NTSC video. In analog formats, such as videotape, 3-2 Pull-down is achieved as part of the film to video transfer. Besides reducing the data storage requirements, this process also offers future opportunities in development of multi-scan, high resolution displays.
