There’s a good reason to get Full HD and that reason is very simple, it’s because the picture quality is so superior you’ll find yourself staring in amazement.
Your hard earned dollar calls for the best money can buy and that quality the Full HD brings is something anyone who has seen it can testify to. The bottom line is that Full HD is the best quality picture today. It even blows away Plasma for many technical reasons and that means we need to look at what 1080p means. First of all there are three types of 1080p. The “P” in 1080p stands for progressive which means the scanning of the picture is done progressive. The scan is done with both even and odd number lines as a single frame not in 60th of a second rate like interlaced or 1080i, but in a frame 30th of a second. This allows for smoother picture flow. The 1080 is in reference to the number of lines that make up a digital picture. 1920 x 1080 means there are 1,920 of the pixels to each of the 1,080 lines so the equation means that 1920 times 1080 comes to 2,073,600 pixels total.

The massive amount of pixels obviously creates a lush, vivid picture where details and depth are astounding. So again, there are three types of 1080p. The first is 1080p/24 which shows the same 24 frames a second as regular movies. Movies are 24 frames a second. That’s how full animation is done. The second is 1080p/30 which is what standard video is shot in, 30 frames a second. That’s why if you see traditional hand drawn animation shown on video it looks different than when you see it at the movie theaters. Video fills in for the additional six frames. Finally there’s 1080p/60 where a single frame is shown twice at 30th of a second which is what Full HD is all about.
Plasma HDTVs and LG Full HD 1080p and others can show all three formats. So you need to ask the manufacturer and store about your choice of screens. Full HD with Blu-ray is something astounding to see and that’s why you want just the right combination. You see, Full HD makes any previous formats look better, sometimes so much so that they look like they were shot in HD. Old video and DVDs really spring to life when seen in Full HD. Sometimes so well that many people are astonished to see their favorite classics like sci-fi movies where the strings holding spaceships can be seen with Full HD and in many movies and old TV shows, every bit of makeup and pimple and wrinkle shows up. It’s like watching these old flicks and shows brand new and the ones that hold up bring the actors and sets and landscapes to a new life.
So the question of “why Full HD” is simple. It’s because at present the quality of picture is so amazing that you’ll wonder what possibly could these technologies come up with next.
