The smallest measurable increment normal to the plane of measurement. A function of the resolution of measurement of interferometric phase.
The number of horizontal lines resolved in a picture is called the vertical resolution, and is determined by the television scanning method, be it NTSC, PAL, or some other format.
Also known as "vertical definition." The number of distinct horizontal lines, alternately black and white, that can be seen in a TV image. Vertical resolution is fixed by the number of horizontal lines used in scanning.
The number of lines or pixels from the top to the bottom of the screen. The larger the number, the better the resolution and the ability to show fine detail. Analog NTSC televisions can display 480 lines interlaced, DTVs can display from 480 lines progressive up to 1080 interlaced.
Specification denoting an amount of discernible detail across a screen's height. Measured in pixels, the higher the number the better the picture quality.
The total number of horizontal lines that can be perceived in the vertical direction of the screen.
Refers to the number of horizontal lines (or pixel rows) from the top of the television screen to the bottom.
The vertical resolution refers to the number of lines displayed on the screen - in the picture area. The higher the number of lines displayed, the better the picture. Anamorphic transfers always display more lines than non-Anamorphic transfers on a screen which supports an Anamorphic display. The table below details the number of lines of resolution available from different picture sources.

The number of scanning lines presented by a video display from the top of the image to the bottom; the number of scanning lines in a video signal. NTSC video has a vertical resolution of 480 lines; HDTV has a vertical resolution of 720 or 1080 lines.
The number of horizontal lines that can be seen in the reproduced image of a television pattern.
Chrominance and luminance detail expressed vertically in the picture tube. Limited by the number of scan lines.
Is the number of horizontal lines which can be resolved in a picture. It is limited by the television scanning method - NTSC, PAL etc.
The ability of a television component (VCR, laser-video player, or TV set) to resolve detail vertically on a television screen. Usually stated in lines of detail from screen top to screen bottom, vertical-resolution limits of consumer-grade television sets are set by the FCC.
The number of horizontal lines from the top of an image to the bottom. In NTSC standard analog signals this is seen as about 480 lines. ATSC standard digital video vertical resolution varies, ranging from SDTV's 480 lines to HDTV's 720 or 1080 lines.
Number of horizontal lines that can be output by a video display.
