A type of television that provides a picture with a clearer resolution than do normal television sets.
A high-definition TV (HDTV) signal that offers higher resolutions and a wider aspect ratio than a traditional TV signal.
A video format superior to a PAL or NTSC image, using 16:9. these include 18 different permutations of frame rate and raster lines. Mastering on 24p allows conversion to any of these standards.
A television with 1080i (interlaced), 720p (progressive scan) or more lines of horizontal resolution, with the ability of creating high quality video images. Older and many current television and video monitors have a picture width and height ratio of 4:3. New HDTV screens typically have a 16:9 ratio to accommodate wide-screen movie playback, and for a more natural viewing.
Television that has approximately twice the horizontal and twice the vertical emitted resolution specified by the NTSC standard.
The best digital television, widescreen (16 x 9) display with at least 720 progressive (p) scanning lines or 1080 interlaced (i) lines and Dolby digital surround sound.
a television system that has more than the usual number of lines per frame so its pictures show more detail
A long-awaited innovation in video technology providing a much better resolution than traditional television.
Any of a number of television standards providing an aspect ratio of about 2:1 and resolution far superior to PAL or NTSC.
High-definition video formats that have 16:9 aspect ratio. Generally refers to 1080i or 720p images. (See "1080i" and "720p" above.) Hypertext markup language (HTML) Standard text format used for Internet documents.
a digital television format that provides high-quality widescreen pictures with compact disc-quality surround sound. The aspect ratio of HDTV pictures is 16:9 as opposed to today’s 4:3 format.

The next generation of television with much higher picture quality, probably distributed digitally and capable of being integrated with computers to offer many services and information resources to the home.
A system with very high resolution. In HDTV, more lines per picture frame are transmitted than is standard, resulting in sharper, more vivid images.
High-definition television (HDTV) is a television broadcasting system with a significantly higher than traditional formats (NTSC, SECAM, PAL).
