1080p (also known as Full HD or FHD and BT.709) is a set of HDTV high-definition video modes characterized by 1080 horizontal lines of vertical resolution and progressive scan, as opposed to interlaced, as is the case with the 1080i display standard. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a resolution of 1920x1080 (2.1 megapixel) often marketed as Full HD.
1080p video signals are supported by ATSC standards in the United States, and DVB standards in Europe. Applications of the 1080p standard include television broadcasts, blu-ray discs, smartphones, Internet content such as YouTube and Netflix, consumer televisions and projectors, computer monitors, video game consoles, camcorders and cameras.
