What is the difference between 1080i and 1080p?
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, 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

1080i and 1080p are both High Definition display formats for HDTVs. 1080i and 1080p signals actually contain the same information. Both 1080i and 1080p represent a 1920x1080 pixel resolution (1,920 pixels across the screen by 1,080 pixels down the screen). The difference between 1080i and 1080p is i…n the way the signal is sent from a source component or displayed on an HDTV screen. In 1080i each frame of video is sent or displayed in alternative fields. The fields in 1080i are composed of 540 rows of pixels or lines of pixels running from the top to the bottom of the screen, with the odd fields displayed first and the even fields displayed second. Together, both fields create a full frame, made up of all 1,080 pixel rows or lines, every 30th of a second. In 1080p, each frame of video is sent or displayed progressively. This means that both the odd and even fields (all 1,080 pixel rows or pixel lines) that make up the full frame are displayed together. This results in a smoother looking image, with less motion artifacts and jagged edges. 1080p can also be displayed (Depending on the video processing used) as a 1080p/60 (Most common), 1080p/30, or in 1080p/24 formats. 1080p/60 is essentially the same frame repeated twice every 30th of a second. (Enhanced video frame rate.) 1080p/30 is the same frame displayed once every 30th of a second. (Standard live or recorded video frame rate.) 1080p/24 is the same frame displayed every 24th of a second (Standard motion picture film frame rate.) ( Full Answer )
Answer 1080p - the frame is produced by using a single progressive scan. 1080i - the frame is produced by using two simultaneous diagonal scans. Human eye cannot differ the two resolutions, so paying an extra Â£1000+ for 1080p is definitely wasted money. Answer I think that 1080p does… give a better picture, but you can only start to appreciate it on the bigger sized tv. For a 1080p screen to be noticably better than a 1080i one, you would probably need a screen size of over 60". Answer The human eye can actually tell the difference very well, especially when watching fast action or sports. 1080p is technically better to watch, but theoretically worse because it does not have the two sets of 540 interlaced lines being displayed alternately. Because each frame is composed of two separate lines being displayed and two moments in time, if the recorded object moves fast enough to be in different places when each field is captured it creates a 'combing' affect. So technically 1080p is better especially when you watch closely. Answer It also depends on the output of the signal being sent into the HDTV. over 85% of tv networks are being broadcast into 1080i the rest is 720P. When will they switch to 1080P? They won't it took over fifty years for the government to change the standard and it hasn't even been effect yet. Stations have already committed to either one of the standards and will be unlikely to change anytime soon. Answer On an Interlaced Picture the scan lines of a frame are arranged in two fields each. One of the two fields contains the odd lines and the other field contains the even lines. Interlacing is when these two fields are shown in sequence at twice the rate of the actual frame and at half the resolution. So each half frame is shown and is slightly different. In the UK PAL televisions operates at 25 frames a second with 50 fields a second (USA 30 frames a second with 60 fields a second). A broadcasted signal that is Interlaced requires half the signal bandwidth of a Progressive signal. A progressive signal has a scan rate of 50 full frames per second compared with an interlaced signal which has half the frame speed. Interlaced pictures on recordings made for television or with a video camera aren't able to be displayed on standard definition LCD televisions and Plasma televisions. This is because the picture isn't created with an electron scan like CRT tv's so LCD televisions and Plama TVs don't gain from the interlaced picture signal. Flat panel widescreen televisions have internal processing to create a progressive scanned picture from a interlaced image - i.e. Deinterlacing. Progressive scanning is a method to display, transmit, and store a moving picture. Each frame has all of the lines instead of even lines or odd lines as with an Interlaced signal and they are shown in sequence. The benefits of Progressive Scanning is that there is a greater vertical resolution than on Interlaced pictures at the same frame rate with out blurring, interlace artifacts, and reduced eye strain. It is also possible to scale to a higher resolution than it is with comparable interlaced sources. Because interlaced signal sources have to be deinterlaced before scaling with obvious combing artifacts, Progressive scanned full images give the best results when scaling. The conversion of a progressive source such as 1080p/50 into an interlaced configuration such as 1080i/25 is easier than the conversion of an interlaced signal to a progressive format. On a still picture there wont be any difference in picture quality between 1080i and 1080P. However with a 1080P source on moving images the 1080P will produce more fluid motion and higher resolution If you don't intend to use a Blueray player, PlayStation 3, or to download films from the internet then a HD ready 1080i/720p tv will probably suffice. However if you want to future proof your self against possibility of future Full HD 1080p broadcasts then the full HD 1080p models are the ones to buy. Obviously if you have or are going to buy a Blueray player, PlayStation 3 or to you are going to down load full HD films then the full HD 1080p is the logical choice. ( Full Answer )
Both 1080i and 1080p have an identical resolution on the screen. For static images, there is no difference between the two. The difference between them is that 1080i uses an "interlaced" signal format. The image is generated with 2 passes of the screen. The first draws all odd numbered lines and the… second draws all even numbered lines. A "progressive" format refreshes the whole image on every pass so it delivers a full image at twice the rate of an interlaced image. For fast movement, 1080p has the edge over 1080i although most would agree that the difference in perceived quality is not a big one. Note that the format used is dependent on the program content. If it delivered as a 1080i signal, the fact that a television can handle 1080p does not make the incoming signal a 1080p format. Also, at present, broadcasters are not using 1080p as a transmission format and are unlikely to use it for a number of years. 1080p is found only on local sources such as games players, Bluray discs and computers. ( Full Answer )
Both formats have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The difference is in the way the picture is refreshed. "i" stands for interlaced. The image is drawn one line at a time starting with all the odd numbered lines, 1, 3, 5 and so on to line1079. Then the image is completed by drawing all the even …numbered lines from line 2 to line 1080. Each pass is known as a field and 1080i normally uses a field rate of 50Hz or 60Hz. A complete refresh is completed 25 or 30 times each second. "p" stands for progressive scanning. In this case, the image is drawn during a single field. Lines are drawn consecutively starting with lines 1, 2, 3, through line 1079 and 1080. As each field is normally drawn 50 or 60 times each second so the image is fully refreshed 50 or 60 times each second. To display a 1080p image needs data at twice the rate of a 1080i image because lines are drawn at twice the rate. Some comments about frame and field rates: In Europe, the field rate is 50Hz while in North America it is 60Hz, hence the two frequencies mentioned above. They are not the only frame and field rates however. Some other rates are used as well. For example, film is normally shot at 24 frames per second. It is quite possible to capture film to a 1080p format but at 24 frames per second. The full format is identified as 1080p 24. Based on the information above, you can see that the data rate for 1080p 24 will be less than 1080p 50 and less than 1080i 25. ( Full Answer )
I do believe that it will work if your buy a converter. That is if they make a converter from interlaced to progressive scan.
720p and 1080i are both high definition television formats and both use the same data rate. The two different resolutions were adopted into the HD specifications and any HD television can display either of them. 1080i has 1080 lines in each picture which are refreshed 25 or 30 times each second. I…t displays the full image in two passes called fields. The first field displays all the odd numbered lines and the next displays all the even numbered lines. The field rate is of course twice the frame rate so there are 50 or 60 fields each second. The alternating field method is known as interlacing, hence the "i" in the format. 720p has, as the number suggests, 720 lines in the picture. The "p" stands for progressive scanning and the full picture is refreshed from top to bottom 50 or 60 times each second. There are no alternating fields with progressive scanning. Although the spatial resolution is lower, the picture is updated twice as fast. Therefore, the same amount of data is used for both formats. For those who are interested, HD raw data uses 1.483 Gigabits per second, compared to SD which uses 270 Megabits per second. 720p was included to allow broadcasters the option of using higher refresh rates for content such as sports. The fast movement typically seen in sports material is better captured with the faster refresh rate as the expense of a slightly lower resolution. All HD televisions and recorders will handle either format without any user intervention. For viewers, it is a little academic as the television will simply display the format that the broadcaster delivers. 1080p is mentioned frequently. At present, broadcasters are not offering 1080p and it is not being used for live production. Because it is a progressive scan, it uses twice the data rate of 1080i and 720p. Current live production equipment rarely supports the format and transmission channels are not given the bandwidth too properly carry the format. It is currently limited to local sources such as games consoles, Bluray players and computer displays. ( Full Answer )
1080i (60Hz or 50Hz) is the high definition standard for broadcast. 1080p (60Hz or 50Hz) is a format that is currently available only from local sources such as Bluray players, games consoles and computers. The difference between them is way the image is refreshed. 1080p 60hz means that the image i…s completely refreshed 60 times every second. 1080i 60Hz means that every other line is refreshed 60 times each second so a full refresh of all the image lines happens 30 times each second. Theoretically, 1080p 60Hz should handle fast movement better than 1080i 60Hz. In practice, there is little to choose. There are also different versions of 1080p. 1080p 24Hz or 25Hz or is sometimes used for a transfer from film. These frame rates compare with the film frame rate. 1080p 24 is actually a lower data rate than the usual 1080i 50Hz or 60Hz broadcast rates. Finally, almost all video content is compressed to reduce the amount of data required to be stored or transmitted. The amount of compression can vary widely and the level of compression has an impact on the image quality. Compression often has a greater impact on image quality than the original display format used. A note about frame rates: In North America, the standard frame rate of 29.97Hz (normally referred to as 30Hz) is used for television. Frame rates of 30Hz and multiples of 30Hz are used, In Europe, the standard frame rate is 25Hz and multiples of it. Therefore, 30Hz and 25Hz suggest North American and European content respectively. ( Full Answer )
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…nterlace) it, creating a progressive scan, meaning the picture is painted from the top to the bottom line (there are 1080 such horizontal lines) in a single pass, and this process (in the US) happens 60 times per second.. 1080p is normally run at 50Hz (Europe) or 59.94Hz (North America). 1080i is normally half that frequency. Even if the signal is converted from 1080i to 1080p, there is no additional picture information and therefore, little is gained by the conversion. If the television actually does the conversion, it is worth doing a comparison between converted and unconverted to see which produces the most pleasing results. ( 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 …the screen where the progressive scans all the lines of video information progressively (one at a time, sort of a stacking one on top of the other like a computer monitor) to build a picture, while the interlaced scans the info by interlacing several between each other as the display builds. You should be able to find more accurate info on the web since it'd take quite a bit of time to explain it here in easy to understand terms. ( Full Answer )
"The 720p means it shows 720 lines across the screen concurrently every 60 seconds, this leads to a resolution of 1280x720. Naturally, the 1080p shows 1080 lines, producing a resolution of 1920x1080. The 720p is more common than the 1080p when watching regular TV, it is usually preferable for sporti…ng events. Basically, the 1080 produces a better resolution than the 720, showing more detail."

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. … The letter "p" means "progressive" which provides a higher resolution than if you see the letter "i" which means "interlaced". If you have two televisions, one a 720p and the other a 720i, the television with 720p will have a higher resolution. *due to standard screen sizes there is no 700p, only 720i or 720p ( Full Answer )
A 1080p set has higher native resolution and supplied with 1080i (e.g., from some cable or satellite programs) or 1080p signal (e.g., from Blue-Ray discs) will provide sharper picture, especially visible on bigger sets (42-inch or more) and from up-close. 1080p sets are however way more expensive th…an 1080i ones.. All flat panel HDTVs (i.e., plasma and LCD), as opposed to CRT tube sets, are inherently progressive in nature. For marketing reasons, however, some manufacturers promote 720p (p for progressive) HDTV as 1080i (i for interlaced), mainly to signal, I suppose, that it supports 1080i signal and to improve their sales. The so called '1080i HDTVs' take a 1080i signal and downconvert the picture to the 720p resolution. Additionally, they de-interlace the 1080i signal and display it in progressive scan mode but in 720p resolution.. So, a 1080i TV set is in reality a 720p set, but many manufactures designated 720p sets as such as soon as 1080p sets came along. 1080p sets, on the other hand, take 1080i cable or satellite signal and only deinterlace it, creating a progressive scan, meaning the picture is painted from the top to the bottom line (there are 1080 such horizontal lines) in a single pass and this process happens 60 times per second (in the US).. This means that same size HDTV sets designated as 720p and 1080i have identical native resolution of the display. Quality of the picture depends only in part from resolution, however, and according to some professionals the most important aspect of picture quality is contrast ratio, the second most important is color saturation, the third is color accuracy, and only the fourth is resolution.

The real reason to convert 1080i to 1080p is for archival purposes.In most cases, 1080i video is a program or film recorded off atelevision broadcast and "trapped" in your DVR (until a full harddrive forces deletion). However, those who still have a workingWindows Media Center (hint: if you upgraded… to Windows 10, youDON'T), are able to capture live 1080i broadcast video as playablefiles (*.WTV). These files can then be converted to the format ofyour choice. Herein lies the problem. Most (if not all) conversionsoftware out there is unable to successfully deinterlace 1080ibroadcast video. Certainly not in the most popular file formats(*.mp4, *.mkv, *.avi, *.mov, etc.) The result is noticeable motionblur. Hopefully one day the technology exists to do this withoutFinal Cut Pro, After Effects and a whole lot of man hours at theprofessional edit bay. It will remain an issue until 1080p isadopted by the cable and satellite providers. ( Full Answer )
It should be, in my opinion. The `I' for interlaced and the `P' for progressive really denotes the method with which the TV displays the picture.
High definition television uses one of three common formats - 720p, 1080i and 1080p. Any incoming signal will be delivered to a television in one of the three formats. 720p indicates that there are 720 lines in the image. The "p" means "progressive" and a complete image is delivered 50 or 60 time…s each second. 1080i shows that there are 1080 lines. The "i" stands for "interlaced" and the image is sent in two halves so a half image is sent 50 or 60 times each second but the full frame is sent only 25 or 30 times each second. 1080p is also made up with 1080 lines but the "p" shows that a full image is delivered 50 or 60 times each second. Broadcasters use 720p or 1080i. These are both full HD signals. Although the 720 line image has a lower resolution, it is updated twice as fast. The data rate for 720p and 1080i is the same. Although 720p is less common than 1080i, it is used by broadcasters for some fast action content such as sports. 1080p updates the image at twice the rate of 1080 and therefore uses double the bandwidth. Broadcasters do not send out 1080p and it is restricted to local sources such as Bluray, games consoles etc. ( Full Answer )
The numbers refer to the number of lines that form a television picture. The "p" stands for "progressive scan". They refer to the signal format and all HD televisions should be able to handle any of the formats. Standard definition television in North America uses 480 lines but the "p" indicates th…at the source is likely to be a computer or other non-broadcast source. Broadcast standard definition television uses 480i which is a lower data rate and requires two fields to generate a single frame of the picture. 480 line images are also normally in a 4 : 3 aspect ratio. High definition broadcasts use either 720p or 1080i. Both are considered to be full HD and both use the same data rate to deliver a signal. In these cases, the image is made of 720 or 1080 lines. The aspect ration is always 16 : 9. 1080p is the same resolution as 1080i but uses progressive scanning to build a complete frame on every pass. This requires twice the data rate of 1080i (for the same field rate) and is not currently available as a broadcast format. It is seen on local sources such as Bluray or games consoles. ( Full Answer )
The TV decides whether it is a "i" or a "p". The cable will pass both types of signals.
the 1080 number refers to the number of lines of video vertically (top to bottom) on your TV. The "P" refers to progressive scan. You have 2 types of scanning: Interlace: Which is where your lines scan the even lines first (540 lines) then the odd lines next (540 lines), then the even line, etc. Thi…s happens 60 times per second which means your complete picture is refreshed 30X per second. Progressive: With progressive scan all 1080 lines are scanned 60X per second which means your picture is refreshed twice as often per second. This results in more smooth motion and greatly enhances your viewing experience.The 1080p is the best HDTV. ( Full Answer )

\nBoth 1080i and 1080p have the same resolution. That means that the amount of detail will be identical with either. However, 1080p delivers a complete image 50 times per second in Europe or 60 times per second in North America. 1080i delivers half of the image in the same time, followed by the o…ther half in the following field. \n. \nIt follows that sports and other fast moving images will be better on 1080p than 1080i and that is indeed the case when the two are compared. The problem with 1080p is that it is not being broadcast at present and won't be for a number of years. 1080p required twice the bandwidth and twice the storage space. Broadcasters don't presently have equipment to handle live 1080p content.\n. \nMost new televisions will handle 1080p but even if it does, sport that is broadcast in 1080i will never become 1080p quality. There is no need to worry though. 1080i delivers some great images even for sport.\n. \nIt is worth mentioning that the other HD standard, 720p offers a lower resolution than 1080 but it delivers a full frame 50 or 60 times each second. The bandwidth is the same as 1080p so the image detail is sacrificed a little for the sake of a faster frame rate. Some broadcasters in North America are using 720p but not all. In Europe, 720p is hardly ever seen with broadcasters all moving to 1080i as their standard. ( Full Answer )
Sometimes it depends in what kind of TV you have, some TV's prefere 1080i to 1080p for example. But if you have a very good HD TV then 1080P is the best resolution to pick for High def Xbox 360 gaming. Hope this helped.
I would think so, the TV is not good enough to see the improvement of blue ray.
1080 is a video standard and has nothing to do with the audio. Connect the stereo audio outputs of the tv to the inputs of the home theater. Check the HT menu to be sure it is set for multi channel audio on the input you are using.
you go in to the service mode and change the model and type and voila you get it to support full hd on a hd ready panel this worked on a samsung LA22B450 set to 22d6th1c/lb650
the "I" is for INTERLACE, the other method is "P" which stands for PROGRESSIVE and is best.
Almost all HD televisions other than some older models will handle 1080p signals. A few of the early models may require the Bluray output to be set to 1080i rather than 1080p.
1080i/50 is better than 1080p/25. One frame in 1080i/50 is always derived in half with old and new fields and framerate is truly 50. This makes much better motion but detailaccuracy is same level as in 25p. Both have same bitrate so 1080i is clear winner in this comparison. 1080p/50 has better vi…deo quality than 1080i/50 but it has double bitrate which is a problem in broadcasting. ( Full Answer )
They are both the same resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The "i" and "p" refer to "interlaced" and "progressive". An interlaced signal generates a full picture in two passes of the screen. The first pass, or field, is made up of all the odd numbered lines: 1, 3, 5, ... 1079. The next field adds al…l the even numbered lines from 2 to 1080. Although the field rate is 50 or 60 fields every second, the full image is refreshed 25 or 30 times each second. A progressive signal generates the full image in a single field drawing consecutive lines 1,2,3 ... 1079,1080. So, a field rate of 50 or 60 fields per second also means a frame rate of 50 or 60 frames each second. The difference between them is that fast movement tends to be handled better with a progressive scan compared to interlaced. It also uses twice the data rate as it draws double the number of lines in any given period compared to interlaced. Currently, broadcast signals are almost exclusively 1080i with 1080p limited to local sources such as HD games consoles and Bluray. The field rates of 50Hz or 60Hz vary depending on the region. Europe and some other parts of the world use 50Hz while North America, Japan and some other regions use 60Hz. The difference is the result of many years of history and there is no sign of the two frame rates being merged into one rate in the near future. ( Full Answer )
High definition television uses one of three common formats - 720p, 1080i and 1080p. 720p indicates that there are 720 lines in the image. The "p" means "progressive" and a complete image is delivered 50 or 60 times each second. 1080i shows that there are 1080 lines. The "i" stands for "interlace…d" and the image is sent in two halves so a half image is sent 50 or 60 times each second but the full frame is sent only 25 or 30 times each second. 1080p is also made up with 1080 lines but the "p" shows that a full image is delivered 50 or 60 times each second. Broadcasters use 720p or 1080i. These are both full HD signals. Although the 720 line image has a lower resolution, it is updated twice as fast. The data rate for 720p and 1080i is the same. Although 720p is less common than 1080i, it is used by broadcasters for some fast action content such as sports. 1080p updates the image at twice the rate of 1080 and therefore uses double the bandwidth. Broadcasters do not send out 1080p and it is restricted to local sources such as Bluray, games consoles etc. ( Full Answer )
Most modern LCD/Plasma TV's are capable of receiving and displaying 720i, 720p, 1080i and 1080p signals. Therefore your TV, if it can receive 1080i, should be quite happy with a 1080p signal.
Depends on what the person wants. 1080i is actually a DVD image. Blu-Ray machines have technology that can make a DVD image compatible with an HDTV, but it will not be a full high-definition picture. Blu-Ray discs always show their movies in 1080 pixels. Personally, I would get Avatar on Blu-Ray
Television images are made of horizontal lines. 1080 indicates that the image is a high definition one and uses 1080 lines to create the image. The "i" and "p" define how the lines will be delivered. "i" stands for interlaced. An interlaced picture will start by showing all the odd numbered lines f…rom 1, 3, 5 etc to line 1079. Then, starting at the top of the screen, all the even numbered lines will be shown from 2 to 1080. so in two passes from the top to the bottom, every line will be shown. the passes each happen 50 or 60 times each second so a full frame will be shown 25 or 30 times each second. "p" stands for progressive. A progressive scan starts at the top of the screen and shows each line in order from line 1 to line 1080. A single pass is all that is needed to build a full image. That means that a full frame will be delivered 50 or 60 times each second. It is easy to see that a progressive signal displays lines at twice the rate of an interlaced signal. It therefore needs to send twice as much data as an interlaced signal. Broadcasters do not transmit 1080p at the moment and are unlikely to do so for at least a few years. The standard broadcast HD signals are 1080i (and 720p). Most HD televisions will handle 1080p signals but they are found only on local sources such as Bluray, games consoles and computers. In practical terms, the difference between "i" and "p" is that progressive signals show smoother movement compared to interlaced. For most programs, the difference is not obvious so the lack of a 1080p signal from broadcasters is not a big deal. A final note on the frame rates: North America uses a 60Hz rate as standard while Europe uses 50Hz. The reason is a historical one but the frame rates will not be changing for either region any time soon. ( Full Answer )
HD televisions are capable of displaying a wide range of image resolutions and timings. Most larger HD televisions will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 576i, 480i and each of these in several different field rates. The standard broadcast format for HD is1080i with 720p used to far lesser extent. The tel…evision shows "1080i" because that is the signal being received. It will only display "1080p" if it receives a 1080p signal. Currently, broadcasters do not transmit 1080p and have no plans to do so for a number of years from now. When playing standard definition material into the television, it is likely to display 576i, 480i or perhaps show the letters PAL or NTSC to indicate the standard definition signal format.

Regardless of the pixel height, progressive scan will always provide a better visual experience. So 1080p.
HDTV is the term for a range of television formats. The common formats in use today are 720p, 1080i and 1080p. There are other resolutions that can also be classed as HD but are not in use today. Each of the resolutions can be delivered at a variety of frame rates. 1080p is just one format in the …HDTV class. It uses 1920 x 1080 pixels and the image is created by a single pass of the screen from the top to the bottom of the image. Contrast this with 1080i which requires two passes of the screen from top to bottom to create a full and complete image. 720p and 1080i are the two formats used for broadcast at present. 1080p is found in local sources such as games consoles and Bluray discs but not yet in live broadcasts. Any HDTV will handle any of the HD formats without any user set up required. ( Full Answer )
1080p and 1080i both refer to the format of a video signal. Any HD television will receive the signal and display it. If the television reports the signal standard being received, it will let you know what the signal is. Therefore, the television cannot be changed from one standard to another as it …simply handles the incoming signal. Currently, broadcast HD signals are almost exclusively 1080i with a few formatted as 720p. Both are considered full HD even though the resolutions are different. 1080p is found on some local sources such as games consoles and Bluray players but has not yet made it to mainstream broadcast services.

If the TV is 1080p capable, it will switch automatically when it receives a 1080p signal. Keep in mind that not all cable and satellite systems will have this service. Look for the INFO button on the remote to see what standard you are receiving.
720p = 720 pixel of video quality 1080p = 1080 pixel of video quality 1080p image quality is better than 720p .
No, 1080p resolution is better than 1080i resolution. This also holds true with 480i and 480p resolution.
It is beyond the systems capability and you connect to the 1080 P HDTV with a Standard 480i input.
This is an automatic function of the TV, if it is connected to a decoder box, look for the resolution settings in the box to be sure it is set on 1080p. .
The difference between 1080i and 1080p is a subtle one. 1080p 50Hz or 1080p 60Hz update the image at twice the rate of 1080i 50Hz or 1080i 60Hz. For fast movement, 1080p handles image updates rather better than 1080i and tends to avoid image flicker that can be apparent on some interlaced formats. …Whether or not it makes a noticeable difference depends on the television and the game content so it's worth trying both formats to make your own decision.

The both deal with the picture on the television. 1080i has interlaced pictures and 1,080 lines of vertical resolution for the picture. 1080p are progressive scans or non-interlaced pictures.
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.
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. The P stands for progressive and the I stands for interlaced. Progressive will process the image twice as f…ast as interlaced and therefore produces better colour and clarity. ( Full Answer )
The main difference between a 1080p and a 1080i HDTV is the method used to decode the digital signal being sent to the television. 1080p signals send each line to be displayed on the television in a progressive manner. 1080i signals send every other line of the display, also known as interlaced. A… 1080p television should be slightly faster as rendering the image since it does not have to interpret the pictures being sent, as they are all in the correct order, but this means the 1080p televisions are probably more expensive, ( Full Answer )
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 …end. If your 1080p isdisplaying 1080i on screen, it just means that is the signal it isreceiving, but it is converted to 1080p before you see it. ( Full Answer )
