What is Hi-Definition (HD)?
Hi-Definition, otherwise known as HD, is the next generation of visual image quality for home entertainment.
Current standard definition (SD) material uses only 576 vertical picture lines of resolution. Hi-Definition images are made up of from 720 to 1080 horizontal scan lines, a quantum leap in sharpness and vivid detail.
DVD is able to support only SD and does not have the necessary storage capacity to satisfy the content rich needs of HD. So, to experience the beauty of HD in your home, you’ll need a new format of disc.
Can I play Blu-ray Disc in a HD DVD player?
No. Blu-ray Discs are not compatible with HD DVD machines. Playback of Blu-ray Discs is limited to equipment bearing the Blu-ray Disc logo.
