HDTV 1080i is an interlaced picture and 1080p is progressive. HDTV 1080p is the shorthand name for a category of video modes. The number 1080 represents 1,080 lines of vertical resolution[1], while the letter p stands for progressive scan or non-interlaced. 1080p is considered an HDTV video mode. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a horizontal (display) resolution of 1920 dots across and a frame resolution of 1920 × 1080 or exactly 2,073,600 pixels. The frame rate in hertz can be either implied by the context or specified after the letter p (such as 1080p30, meaning 30 frames per second). 1080p is sometimes referred to in marketing materials as "True High-Definition" or "Full High-Definition". Although 2K/4K digital cinema technology is commercially available, and ultra-high definition video is in the research phase, 1080p and 1080i are currently the highest-resolution formats widely used for broadcasting and consumer distribution of video content. 1080i (pronounced "ten eighty I") is shorthand name for a category of video modes. The number 1080 stands for 1080 lines of vertical resolution, while the letter i stands for interlaced or non-progressive scan. 1080i is considered to be an HDTV video mode. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels and a frame resolution of 1920 × 1080 or about 2.07 million pixels. The frame rate in hertz can be either implied by the context or specified after the letter i. The two frame rates in common use are 25 and 30 Hz, with the former (1080i25) generally being used in traditional PAL and SECAM countries (Europe, Australia, much of Asia, Africa), the latter (1080i30) in traditional NTSC countries (e.g. United States, Canada and Japan). Both variants can be transported by both major digital television formats, ATSC and DVB. 1080i vs 1080p To compare 1080i and 1080p it is important to compare framerates. Due to interlacing 1080i has twice the frame-rate but half the resolution of a 1080p signal using the same bandwidth. This is especially useful in sport-shows and other shows with fast-moving action. However, on some flat screens that don't support interlacing, this instead becomes smeared or jarred artifacts. Current digital television broadcast systems and standards are not equipped for 1080p50/60 transmission. Also, the majority of consumer televisions offered for sale are currently not equipped to receive or decode a 1080p signal at any frequency. It is less bandwidth-intensive to broadcast a film at 1080p24 than 1080i30, since 20% less data would be transferred. In addition, when the source material is 24 frames per second, as are most films, it would be easy to convert a 1080p24 broadcast to an NTSC 1080i30 format using a 3:2 pulldown process (see telecine). Moreover, displaying a p24 broadcast on an i50 system (such as PAL) requires the speed of video and audio be increased by over 4% (to 25 frames per second). For movies the frames (25 or 30 per second) are segmented into two interlaced fields with equal time index (psf, progressive in or with segmented frames). The deinterlacer has to perform a simple weave only. This ensures compatibility with 1080i25/30 with only little less coding efficiency than 1080p25/30 and half the bandwidth requirement of 1080p50/60, but the SDTV problems of PAL speed-up and Telecine judder remain. 1080i is better

Do 1080p TV sets convert 1080i signal to 1080p format?

All LCD displays use progressive scanning, namely the whole frame is built up line by line rather than odd lines followed by even lines. Therefore, by default, 1080i will be converted to 1080p, but at a frame rate of 25Hz or 29.97Hz.. 1080p sets take 1080i cable or satellite signal and convert (dei ( Full Answer )

Is there any visible difference in picture quality of 1080i and 1080p 42 inch LCDs if your cable signal is 1080i?

Probably not. All that means is that the I (interlaced) and P (progressive) scans are interpolated by the TV set and then displayed. All of the picture info should still be available for display. In general terms, all the interlaced or progressive scan means, is how the TV handles the display on ( Full Answer )

What is the difference between 700p and 1080p?

In almost all instances the two screen types* will be defined as "720" and "1080" which denotes either 720 horizontal lines of resolution or 1080. The more pixels there are the higher quality the picture will be, so a television with 1080p will have a higher resolution than a television with 720p. ( Full Answer )

The terms 1080i (interlaced) and 1080p (progressive) indicate how images are stored and displayed. In the days of analog tv this would be important, however with the advancement of technology most digital tvs can handle both 1080i and 1080p signals.

What is the difference between 1080p and 1080i on a HDTV?

It's to do with the resolution.The 1080 identifies the number of lines that create the image, so 1080p and 1080i have the same number of lines. The letter stands for the type scan the TV uses.

Why is your 1080p television showing 1080i?

HDTV is broadcast in two formats: 720p and 1080i. When your 1080pset gets these signals it has to convert them to 1080p. With 720pit scales the image to 1080p while with 1080i it deinterlaces theimage. Current TVs are very good at this and so you wind up withthe full 1080 lines of resolution in the ( Full Answer )
