    Default TV 1080p.

    I only discovered Argos TV on freeview last night. There was a female and a male presenter selling a 42" Bush TV. I think the man was a so called technology expert. He said that the TV was 1080p, and that meant it was a thousand and eighty pixels.
    And I thought that the sit-up shower talked a load of b****cks!



    Don't you just want to give up with all of these shopping channels, with all of the nonsense that they come out with?

    It **IS** and does mean a thousand and eighty pixels, or am I missing something here?

    1080p = a vertical resolution of 1080 pixels
    720p = a vertical resolution of 720 pixels
    Full HD = a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels

    :)

    I'm afraid you are stumpy!

    1080p means the screen has 1080 horizontal lines of resolution and the p means progressive. A picture of of only 1080 pixels would be just a a lot of square blocks.

    A full HD TV picture is made up of around 2,000,000 pixels.

    1080*1920 = 2073600 pixels.

    Well at least you were as well informed as their technology expert.

    I believe that it means 1080 lines rather than pixels http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1080p but I and indeed Wiki have been wrong many times and will be many times again :-). I guess the channel were hinting at the p standing for pixels, but it as I am sure you know stands for progressive :-)

    Splitting hairs there methinks!! :p

    It is 1080 pixels on the vertical resolution...in tv speak/land this means exactly the same as saying 1080 (horizontal) lines...and neither necessarily mean Full HD.

    And as noted, p is progressive (ie the screen in scanned once to display a frame) - i is interlaced (ie the screen is scanned twice to display a frame...alternate scanlines)

    However, there is no doubt that the presenter could have been a bit more clear in his description. Do you think he thought the 'p' in 1080p meant pixels rather than progressive?

    Perhaps I wasn't very clear. The presenter said that 1080p meant that the picture was a thousand and eighty pixels.That would mean a screen resolution of something like 50*25 pixels. Yes, the p in1080p does mean progessive scan.

    Think you've been reading up stumpy.
