There are two types of HDTV – HD Ready TV and Full HD TV. Both formats are a vast improvement on standard definition TV but for the keen gamer or movie buff Full HD with 1080 lines of detail is the technology of choice.
HD Ready is a format that allows double the resolution of standard definition TV pictures. TVs must be able to show 720 horizontal lines of information in every single frame. HD Ready will give a brilliant picture whether you are watching HD broadcasts, Blu-ray Disc™ movies or gaming on a PLAYSTATION®3.
