How's that now?

720p is a 16:9 aspect ratio resolution...

1280x1024 is a 4:3 aspect ratio resolution.

720p is 1280x720.

Yes so basically it doesn't equal either resolution. He needs to up to 1080 or change it back down to 720

O_o

okay... let's go back to the resolution basics.



Television resolutions are reported differently than computer monitor resolutions. TV's are measured in lines (how many horizontal rows exist, counted vertically), while computer monitors are measured in a more sensible way, a plain count of pixels.


1024x768 means there are 1024 pixels in width, and 768 pixels in height. Apply that to any ##x## resolution for a computer monitor and it means the same thing.


For TV's, which is kinda stupid, they still tried to go with the line count even after HDTV standards.

So we have the numbers 480, 720, and 1080 floating around.

I stands for interlace scan

P stands for progressive scan

Interlace scan is 30 fps source material, with half the image displayed for 1/60th of a second, and the other half displayed the other 60th of a second, providing a 60fps end result.

Progressive scan uses raw 60 frames per second, letting you see the entire resolution of image at any point in time, whereas interlace only shows half the height resolution at once.



Now for the numbers themselves,

480 lines = 720x480
720 lines = 1280x720
1080 lines = 1920x1080

480i is standard definition, and is 4:3 (the pixel aspect is .9, which means that the image will be stretched to resemble 4:3... as 720x480 is no where near a 4:3 aspect ratio if the pixels were square. As you can see, SDTV is a piece of junk standard, and the sooner it is phased out completely, the better.

720p and 1080i/p are 16:9 aspect ratio, meaning for every 16 pixels in width, you have 9 pixels in height.
