    What the Movie studios use is generally much higher resolution than domestic and broadcast Hi def in all its guises

    Affordable hi def is what we have domestically .. and it is also in the industries interest to have small size Hi def for broadcast bandwth purposes

    Hollywood uses higher

    1080p is by no means the ultimate in "definition" and TBH a 720p well sorted display is probably "higher def" to your eyes then a mediocre 1080i/p model

    As for resolutions higher than 1080p given the current scantiness of material recorded and the excellent playback of 720p 1080i devices, Im not holding my breath for even more res but in truth only time will tell

    The more than 15 year old CD has not been replaced as the Hi fidelity audio format and even Vinyl refuses to die!:rolleyes:
