Resolution mess

Today everybody have HD-ready plasmas or lcd-s at home Either 1080 or 768 horisontal lines resolution. There are only few devices what provide HD resolution, but lets refresh our memory in the resolution mess!

480 lines NTSC DVD, format mostly used in US 720 x 480
576 lines PAL TV and DVD, format used in Europe 720 x 576
720 lines HD format
1080 lines HD format

  • SCART is capable of carrying up to 576i lines (technically 625 lines with additional data)
  • Component video is capable of carrying signals such as 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p
  • HDMI cable is capable handling signals up to 1080p

Hope, it helped...
