What is 1080p?

Also known as "Full-HD," 1080p is a shorthand term for video recorded at 1920 lines of horizontal resolution and 1080 lines of vertical resolution, and optimized for 16:9 format playback. The "p" stands for progressive, which means all of the data is contained in each frame, as opposed to "interlaced" (i), in which the image data is split between two frames in alternating lines of image data.
