HD
How much information defines an image. There are two types of resolution, spatial and temporal. Spatial defines how many pixels are used to make up a single image. Common spatial resolutions for HD are 1920x1080 and 1280x720. Temporal defines how many images per second are displayed. Common temporal resolutions for HD are 24, 25, 30, 50, and 60 frames per second.

The level of resolution directly affects picture quality. The higher the resolution, the more picture detail there is. Many things affect picture quality, including number of bits, pixel count, format, receiver quality, cameras, lenses and lighting used for live or taped programming. Resolution is measured by the number of pixels displayed. One of the high-definition picture formats is composed of 1080 active lines, and each line is composed of 1920 active pixels. Therefore, each frame has over 2 million (1080x1920=2,073,600) color pixels creating the image. By way of contrast, today's typical analog television is roughly equivalent to 480 active lines, with each line holding about 440 pixels. So, each frame has a little over 200,000 color pixels in use creating the image.
