CCIR System D is an analog broadcast television system used in the Commonwealth of Independent States, parts of Eastern Europe and People's Republic of China.[1][2]

This was the first 625-line system, developed by Mark Iosifovich Krivosheev in 1948,[3][4] and later associated with the SECAM and PAL color systems. Used on VHF only in most countries, it's usually combined with system K on UHF. In China it is used for both VHF and UHF.
