480i is SDTV (Standard Definition)


480p is EDTV (Extended Definition)


720p, 1080i (and some day 1080p) are HDTV (High Definition)


And these formats must be native, not upconverted, to qualify in the category.

Ken,


"EXTENDED DEFINITION." Wow, whoever coined that one. I could understand "improved definition" or something like that, but "extended definition" sounds awful. No wonder people stumble all over these terms. Art
