View Full Version : Minimum size for a tv to be HD
Is there a minimum size for a TV to be called HD and recieve & display HD signals ?
In a word no. HD is a set of resolutions. So provided it can display the 720p resolution (1280 x 720) it can be called HD ready. Though on anything small the difference does become quite unnoticeable. Also note that 720p is not proper HD. The 1080i or 1080p is true HD and has a resolution of 1920*
I thought that 1080p was the only REAL HD. 1080i is interlaced. I would go as far to say for general viewing, 17 - 19 inch on 720p is totally fine. only really when u get to 22inch + you could do with 1080p.
Hope that helps.
I am pretty sure they are both true HD it's just 1080i splits each image into 2 lots of 540 lines and displays 1 for 1 30th of a second and then the other for 1 30th of a second and so on. 1080p shows it full image by image the big difference is 1080p usually shows less motion blur.
I would tend to agree with the "22-24 inch before you notice a difference" view - once again size matters!
Beat that 150 inch lol
