An Alternative View of Full HD

An industry-leading sound and vision reviewer (Harvey Norman) has contacted SmartHouse to shed some light on a question raising much chatter in the electrical retail industry - what constitutes full HD?

While I don't agree with everything the writer says I do think that "Full HD" is just a marketing term to help sell new 1080p tvs.

yes full HD really is just a marketing term.

i've had stupid best buy salesmen tell me that 480p is 1/3 HD...

Will there be a time that TV makers no longer make 720p TV unless it is limited by the size? say 24inches or below

We all know that 24inches or above LCD screen can produce a resolution of 1920x1080(1200) with no problem, so as a matter of fact, if tv makers are only going to make 1080p TVs after sat 1-2 years, of course it is going to be the standard for FullHD TV like 480i dominated for so many years

and btw i wonder what will HD DVD camp say if 1080p TV does dominate the market a couple years after

I've never seen one issue draw out so much ignorance from fanboys.

here's a clue for you: Interlaced was called a bad idea back when it was first proposed 50 somewhat years ago. interlaced is why you have "jitter" or better known as "flicker" in your images. HIGH RESOLUTION devices like PC's have used ALWAYS used progressive signals.
