What is HDTV?
HDTV stands for high-definition television, and it marks the biggest leap forward for television since color TV made its debut in the 1950s. HDTV images are more than twice as detailed as standard analog TV. HDTVs can display both regular or standard images and HDTV images, but they need HD sources to look their best.
Just how much sharper is HDTV than regular TV?
Analog TV - what we've been watching for more than 60 years - has a resolution that's equivalent to about 640x480 pixels. An HDTV program, on the other hand, has a resolution that tops out at 1,920x1,080 pixels, more than six times as sharp in best-case scenarios.
