Filming for many countries - PAL / NTSC / SECAM


I'm from Sweden but I'm about to live in Colombia for a couple of months and I would like to shoot with my XH-A1 there. I'm thinking of upgrading it to NTSC/PAL. I would like to have as much freedom as possible when it comes to view the material - to be able to show my stuff both in NTSC countries (on video projector, tv and computer) and in PAL countries. Both SD and HD.

It seems the tv color standards (PAL, NTSC, SECAM) are a problem. You either have to shoot in the right format or post-convert (which people say degrades quality rather much).

So my basic question is - how do international videographers solve this problem generally? And why are all the imported tv programs so good in quality if post conversion lessens quality so much?
