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

Canal+
CANALS and NAVIGATIONS are human-made channels for water conveyance (supply), or to service water transport vehicles . In the vernacular, both are referred to as 'canals', and in most cases, the engineered works will have a series of dams and locks that create areas of low speed current flow. These areas are referred to as 'slack water levels', often just called 'levels'. The main difference between them is that a navigation parallels a river and shares part of its waters, its drainage basin and leverages its resources by building dams and locks to increase and lengthen its long stretches of deep enough slack water levels while staying in its valley . In contrast, a canal cuts across a drainage divide atop a ridge (however humble), generally requiring an external water source above the highest elevation . Many canals have been built at elevations towering over valleys and others water ways crossing far below
