1080i
1080I (a.k.a. FHD and BT.709 ) is an abbreviation referring to a combination of frame resolution and scan type, used in high-definition television (HDTV) and high-definition video . The number "1080" refers to the number of horizontal lines on the screen. The "i" is an abbreviation for "interlaced" ; this indicates that only the odd lines, then the even lines of each frame (each image called a video field) are drawn alternately, so that only half the number of actual image frames are used to produce video. A related display resolution is 1080p , which also has 1080 lines of resolution; the "p" refers to progressive scan , which indicates that the lines of resolution for each frame are "drawn" in on the screen sequence. The term assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 (a rectangular TV that is wider than it is tall), so the 1080 lines of vertical resolution implies 1920 columns of horizontal resolution, or 1920 pixels × 1080 lines
