Actually the number means the frequency of the color carrier which is different for PAL and NTSC, i.e. 3.58MHz for NTSC and 4.43 MHz for PAL. So, you will have color on your recorded NTSC movie using this PAL compliant VCR mentionen earlier.

FYI: NTSC 4.43 is also known as NTSC-J. It is a "PAL-type" NTSC in that it uses the same sub-carrier colour frequency as PAL (in comparison to ordinary NTSC which uses 3.58 MHz as its subcarrier).
NTSC-J (4.43) is used only in Japan. NTSC-M (3.58) is used elsewhere in other NTSC countries.
NTSC-J looks slightly better than ordinary NTSC because it has a better signal/noise ratio.
I prefer the PAL standard. It provides sharper pictures and colors that are far more brilliant than NTSC. The only thing that I don't like is the noticable flicker, but newer TVs have doubled the old PAL standard of 1/50 fields per second to 1/100 fields per sec.

is there any way to convert from NTSC 3.58 TO NTSC 4.43?

Yes, there is a way to convert between ntsc 3.58 and ntsc 4.43. Visit the following website: www.tenlab.com. They sell converters that can do the trick. Personally, I think even a PANASONIC AG-W1 Video Recorder can also do the job, but you'll need another vcr to record the converted image.

Will an NTSC 4.43 formatted tape play on a regular NTSC 3.58 VCR?
