Experience Full HD with 1080

One of the most commonly asked questions about ‘Full HD’ or ‘Complete High-Definition’ is the about the difference between 1080 and 1080i which are both considered Full/Complete HD. Take some time to learn which format is right for you.

What’s the difference between 1080i and 1080?

Scan type comes in two versions: ‘P’ and ‘I’ Progressive Scan (denoted by the ‘p’) – This method shows each line of pixels consecutively from top-to-bottom and left-to-right. With 720 lines and 1,280 pixels in each line, this process must be done extremely fast and it a primary factor for why Progressive Scan televisions are generally more expensive.

Interlaced Scan

1080 stands for the number of vertical lines (1,080) scanned. This method shows each line of pixels on the screen in two sets: 540 odd lines and 540 even lines for a total of 1080 lines. If each line were numbered, it would flash between odd and even numbered lines. This, alternating ‘back and forth’ flashing, occurs as such a fast rate; the human eye will not notice it.

Both formats are considered Full HD; however most people believe progressive (1080) is the better of the two. More and more programming is now being offered in the 1080 format. If you’re looking for the best quality and you don’t mind spending the extra money, then a 1080 television is where it’s at.
