The max resolution is about 1440x1080i on SFP sets, correct?


If fed a 1080i signal, some horizontal detail is lost because 1440 is less than 1920, correct?


If fed a 720p signal, no detail is lost because 1440 is greater than 1280, correct?


So, if fed a 1080i signal from an Xbox 360 game (which is just a 720p signal scaled to 1080i by the console), does this mean that some horizontal detail is lost when viewed on a Super Fine Pitch screen? It doesn't matter if I can't visually tell the difference, but does that make feeding these sets a 720p signal from the 360 instead of 1080i a superior choice if one does not want any horizontal detail loss?

A 720p input will be scaled internally to 1080i, by the MultiImageDriver (MID) of the Sony, much the same as the scaling that takes place within the XBOX. Is one better at this than the other? Probably the Sony.

The 1080 vs 720 thing is common with CRT and Plasma TVs. Many of them actually have a lower resolution than 1080i. Some of them are even lower than 720p! But in the case of the XFP sets, the resolution is still higher than 720p. So sending a 1080i signal from your video source (Xbox360, Bluray, etc) is preferable. You want to start with the best possible signal.
