Are there any plasmas/lcds that support 1920/1080 hi def?

    Just there seems to be a lot of talk in magazines of newer plasmas and lcds being hidef compatible, yet I haven't heard or seen any tv that can handle the max spec hi-def signal. Seems like most tvs consider the 720p signal hi-def? Does this mean that sky's 2006 hi-def service will only be 1280 by 720p?

    Plus where would SKY get the extra bandwidth for full 1920/1080 hi def broadcasts?

    Rob,

    Native 1920x1080 resolution LCDs are due out soon e.g the 46" Samsung LTP468W and LG are releasing a 71" 1080p plasma too. Most plasmas can handle 1080i or 720p HD signals - the Panasonic Viera plasmas being a notable exception. We don't know yet which HD format Sky will use - hopefully they will use one of the new more efficient codecs such as VC-9 or H.264 to give us 1080p. ;) Hope this helps.
