What is HD?
HD (High Definition) is a digital television broadcasting system with higher resolution than traditional Standard Definition (SD) television systems.Instead of using the conventional 625 lines (of which only 576 lines are actually visible) to plot a TV picture, HD uses 720 or 1080 lines. In addition, the pixels in each of those lines are smaller and closer together, resulting in hugely improved picture quality, clarity and colour definition. HD also uses more colours, increasing the richness and intensity of everything you watch. Most HD programmes and movies utilize the widescreen 16:9 format and are also created with cinema-style surround sound, which you can experience in full with a compatible surround sound system. It’s the ultimate way to watch your favourite movies, series and sporting events and it delivers so much more!
