All digital camera's in use today are 1080 x 1920 or higher (4K cameras are now pretty much standard) - even when the network is 720p (ABC, Fox, ESPN, etc). For HDTV there are certainly standards...

Not necessarily: the STB output resolution depends on the Video Format settings on the STB, It is entirely possible that the 1080i signal could be output at 480i if the settings called for it.
