Terms of HDTV

HDTV Monitor- This is just a display device. This does not have a tuner inside the television. It will accept a signal from a cable or satellite box through a HDMI or component cable.

HDTV- Means that the TV should receive most signal formats form standard definition to high definition. HDTV’s typically will display 720p. It will receive a full HD signal of 1080i or 1080p and display it as 720p

Full HD- Top of the line TV set. This set will display a 1080p signal.

Resolution

Televisions are of the following resolutions:

SDTV: 480i (720x480 split into two 240-line fields)

EDTV: 480p (720x480)

HDTV

HDTV: 720p (1280x720)

Full HDTV

HDTV: 1080i (1280x1080, 1440x1080, or 1920x1080 split into two 540-line fields)

HDTV: 1080p (1920x1080 progressive scan)

An easy way to break this information down would be to think of digital cameras. If you take a picture with a 1 Mega pixel camera and try to print an 8X10 photo it will look grainy. But if you where to take the same picture with a 10 Mega pixel camera and printed it the edges of the object would be smooth and a nice clear photo.
