    Whilst reading avsforums I noticed that the Americans talk of SD, ED, and HD plasma screens. Whereas we only talk of SD & HD screens. Apparently SD & ED are both 480 lines but the SD only refreshes half the lines at a time so the image is less sharp. See article here

    Are there any UK plasmas that are effectively ED screens? Or do we just call everything SD? I'm a bit confused :confused:

    I reckon an EDTV is possibly a progressive scan tv. Where as SDTV is an interlaced tv.

    Thats my theory.

    480p is considered EDTV
    720p and 1080i HDTV

    and 480i is what they call SD. - Found it in the end on a google search.

    Thanks for your help, so most of the panels we call SD the Americans call ED. Who says we speak the same language. lol
