has a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, a vertical resolution of 720 pixels and a horizontal resolution of 1280 pixels, that is 1280×720, for a total of 921,600 pixels. The 1280×720
format is always progressive scan, there is no interlace version of 1280×720.
1080i is the shorthand name for a format of high-definition video modes. 1080 denotes the number of horizontal scan linesalso known as vertical resolutionand the letter i stands for interlaced. In the alternate format of high-definition video mode, known as 1080p, the p would stand for progressive scan."
