High Definition Format

High Definition format is what the whole digital TV experience is all about. There are 3 high definition formats for broadcasters to chose from. With 720p the picture is 1280×720 pixels, refreshed at 60 complete frames per second. 1080i and 1080p where the picture is 1920×1080 pixels. In a progressive format (p), the full picture updates every 60th of a second. In an interlaced format (i), half of the picture updates every 60th of a second. When you see ads for HDTV these are the formats used and create a far superior picture quality in comparison to analog. TV becomes DVD quality like and above.
