What the different between a 1080I and a 1080P?
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 all 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.
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. Read More
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… Read More
yup it can decode 1080p all the way threw 480i (1080i included) Read More
HDTV is broadcast in two formats: 720p and 1080i. When your 1080p set gets these signals it has to convert them to 1080p. With 720p it scales the image to 1080p while with 1080i it deinterlaces the image. Current TVs are very good at this and so you wind up with the full 1080 lines of resolution in the end. If your 1080p is displaying 1080i on screen, it just means that is the signal… Read More
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. Read More
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… Read More
No, 1080p resolution is better than 1080i resolution. This also holds true with 480i and 480p resolution. Read More
Negative, no networks broadcast in 1080P yet, it does 720P and 1080i Read More
1080p is the current highest definition standard for HD televisions. Read More
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 video quality than 1080i/50 but it has double bitrate which is a problem in broadcasting. Read More
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… Read More
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. Read More
1080i is the highest output Read More
No, only 1080i. 1080p is currently only found on local video sources such as games consoles and computer displays. Broadcasters are currently using only 1080i and 720p as their HD formats. Read More
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. Read More
Yes, if you use the proper cables Read More
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. Read More
yes the quality is quiet different 1080 is much better how ever the is litttle to no difference betwee 1080i and 720p but 1080p is the best Read More
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 in 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… Read More
the iPhone 4 is 1080i, not 1080p. the iPhone 4s is 3600p, which is the leading innovation in the smartphone world at nearly twice the digital quality of any 1080p device. Read More
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 (deinterlace) it, creating a progressive scan, meaning the picture is painted from the top to the bottom line (there are 1080 such horizontal… Read More
Regardless of the pixel height, progressive scan will always provide a better visual experience. So 1080p. Read More
Both 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 other half in the following field. It follows that sports and other fast moving images will be better on 1080p than 1080i… Read More
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. Read More
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 fast as interlaced and therefore produces better colour and clarity. Read More
Yes, blu-ray is 1080p and 1080i. Of course it doesn't have to be since blu-ray is only a storage device and does not entirely reflect the quality of the picture. But most blu-ray movies are 1080p. Read More
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 television 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… Read More
Answer If you want them in 1080p yes. HDMI stands for "high definition multimedia interface" and will do both your audio and video. You can also use the component cables (the 5 cables with the green, blue etc) This will make it in 1080i. The naked eye can tell zero difference between 1080p & 1080i. The p stand for progressive & the i for interlaced. Both are high quality HDTV. The HDMI & 1080p is… Read More
High definition 720p video can be viewed on a 1080i TV as they are both compatible. Higher definition 1080p is more commonly used in most newer televisions. Read More
1080 is the number of vertical scanning lines on the 1080i and 1080p High Definition Video modes. Read More
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… Read More
Some of the movies on PPV or Video on Demand can be purchased in 1080i. When an attempt is made to order a 1080i movie, the receiver will run a test to make sure the TV can handle this format. Read More
1080p signal may not work on a 1080i TV set. You may not get a picture, but just a blank screen. And that blank screen will not let you undo the changes because you cannot see anything on the screen. In this case, you may have to make an analog connection, such as a composite video connection, to your TV set just to undo the changes you have made. Or you have to press a… Read More
As of summer 2008, all satellite and cable companies in the US transmit only 1080i digital signal. When a cable or satellite service is used, there is no advantage of 1080p TV set over 1080i TV set. However 1080p sets usually come with some other more advanced specifications, which may make the image higher quality. Cable and satellite companies do not intend to upgrade the 1080i signal to 1080p in the near future, since this… Read More
No that feature is for the PS3 and it is in 1080p resolution if your playing the movie on a 1080p hdtv, with an HDMI chord (I don't know if component cables play in 1080 or just 720) Read More
It runs my PS3 at either 480i/p, 575i/p (I think), 720p and 1080i. If I try and run 1080p there is a picture but the colours are distorted. It's hard to find TV's smaller than 40" that will handle 1080p and if you can I don't think they will be as small as 19". Read More
Well, in my opinion 720p. But, technally speaking, 1080i is the better resloution. ---- The sharpness of picture will be as follows from the sharpest to the least sharp: # Watching 1080p signal on a 1080p TV set # Watching 1080i signal (e.g., on many cable programs) on a 1080p TV set # Watching 1080i signal on 1080i or 720p TV sets (see explanation below) # Watching 720p on any of the above sets All… Read More
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 than 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… Read More
1080i is the main standard for HD broadcasting. (720p is the other standard employed). 1080p is not used for broadcasting at present and is unlikely to be used for a number of years. Broadcasters are still busy moving to 1080i, so expect a delay before 1080p makes much of an appearance. The difference between them is the way the image is created. the "i" stands for interlaced and means that each fram is made up… Read More
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. Read More
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… Read More
1080p is not currently being used in live television production and is not being broadcast at present. Broadcasters are still migrating to 1080i and 720p formats and the majority of HD production equipment will not support 1080p. No doubt, it will come in time but expect broadcast 1080p to be some years away yet. The Sony PS3 boasts the ability to deliver 1080p as do certain other local devices. Personally, I am not aware of… Read More
Broadcast television currently does not use 1080p. The HD formats in use at present are 720p and 1080i. The "i" stands for interlaced and it means that on a single pass of the screen half of the image is built up. The second pass sees the remainder of the image added to the first half. A full image is delivered 25 or 30 times each second. A 1080p signal delivers a full image on every… Read More
720p, 1080i, and 1080p are three types of broadcast signals that may reach your HDTV set as an input, with 1080p being the highest quality and, as of mid 2008, only available on Blue-Ray discs and in high-end computer games. People often confuse these broadcast signals with native resolution of the TV sets. All flat panel HDTVs (i.e., plasma and LCD), as opposed to CRT tube sets, are inherently progressive in nature. For marketing reasons… Read More
I do believe that it will work if your buy a converter. That is if they make a converter from interlaced to progressive scan. Read More
Picture quality would a better way to state it. The best sets are the 1080i and 1080p type. Read More
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 is completely refreshed 60 times every second. 1080i 60Hz means that every other line is refreshed 60 times each second so a full refresh of… Read More
