Help me Cow!

I'm in the US doing a project for someone in the UK and was wondering what the specs were for PAL DVDs. The client wants the final video to be widescreen. What's the resolution, pixel aspect ratio, etc? What is the square pixel equivalent (i.e. 720x540 square = 720x480 rectangular)?

Thanks a bunch!

Anamorphic at 720x576 pixels (non-square), which translates to 768x576 square pixels.

Thanks, Bill! So, if I work at 768x432, square, I'll be able to easily translate it to anamorphic PAL widescreen?

Thank you so much for your patience!

No. You need to start at 1024x576 square pixels and resize down to 720x576.
