    Hi,
    why most broadcast facilities requires VITC on line 21 and example not on 17?
    Thanks to all!

    Line 21 is the line allocated for closed captioning, not 23.

    VITC is usually allocated to either lines 14&16 or 16&18.

    [Chad Brewer] “Line 21 is the line allocated for closed captioning, not 23.”

    Really? Not where I come from – VITC is line 21 (PAL)

    Right.
    Usually 19&21 for PAL VITC.

    Misjudged that the original poster wasn’t on our “American” system.
    It’s hard to tell when people don’t explain whether they are on an NTSC or a PAL based plant, regardless of their geographic location. He assumed, I assumed. Oops.

    Here’s another assumption: I hope you’re rooting for Cadel Evans this year, but perhaps that’s for another forum.

    strictly speaking VITC is on both fields so lines 19 & 21 AND lines 332 & 334 (in PAL).
