Study the Basics

Understanding the basic vocabulary behind HDTV is a part of every successful conversion. It can be easy to get lost in all the acronyms and numbers. But, don’t panic. You don’t need to learn every high-tech term. Actually there are just a handful of basic concepts you’ll want to be familiar with.

HDTV: High-definition television describes TVs with resolutions of 720p or higher. It also describes the system by which HD broadcasts are sent and received. Today’s HDTV sets are digital.

SDTV: Standard-definition televisions have resolutions of less than 720p. They can be digital or analog.

EDTV: Enhanced-definition televisions are a step above SDTVs, but not considered HDTVs.

Progressive Scan:
A method for displaying moving images on a screen in which every line is drawn en totem in each frame. Progressive scanning makes images look better than the traditional interlacing method.

Interlacing: A method for displaying moving images in which only every other line is drawn in a frame. When transferring images, interlacing saves bandwidth, but appears to flicker slightly when compared to progressive scanning. The 1080i content doesn’t appear as nicely as 1080p content. However, experts say watching 1080i content on a 1080p-capable TVs is not much better than watching 720p content, especially from further than a few feet away.

720p, 1080p: 720p is the lowest “content-resolution standard” considered high-definition. 1080p is currently the highest content resolution in existence. The “720” stands for 720 lines of vertical display and “p” stands for progressive scan. Most 720p content generally assumes a widescreen ratio of 16:9 and a horizontal resolution of 1280 pixels. Meanwhile the 1080p content also assumes a widescreen ratio of 16:9, but with 1080 lines of vertical display and a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels. Remember, the more pixels, the higher the resolution and the higher the resolution, the “better” the TV looks up close. However, not much programming is available in 1080p, so unless you plan on watching lots of HD movies, going with a 720-capable model can be okay.

1080i: 1080i is a high-definition resolution standard like 720p and 1080p. Programs broadcast in 1080i have the same number of pixels as 1080p programs, but they use interlacing rather than progressive scan (explained above) to deliver moving images.

Topic: Pregnant at 52 after reunion love spell
Testimony:
-My marriage was falling almost dead due to a bit argument, depression, feelingless and numbed attitudes of my Hubby, he preferred being silent so as to hurt me.
-Although there’re days he has been fine and good to me, we cook, eat and do things together, but we still like stepping on a dozen of eggs, we were not at ease as like before when our marriage was still in an excellent shape. Most times after saying some hurtful words to me like; I cannot bear his children anymore cos of my age. He says sorry and apologize cos he knows that he’s acting passive, numbed and feelingless to me and frustration hits him back again and again.
-I truly love my Hubby and feels guilty of our misfortune, I have always wanted to trace back my wrongs and make some amendments so we can live as a happy family with our children by our side. I was tired of seeing him hurt inside.
-He eventually served me with a divorce letter after 18 years of our blessed marriage. His reason was that we could never work things out together again, I couldn’t bear his children, shutting him off to be involved in my life and affairs, he feels numbed when he thinks of those circumstances.
-I was deeply hurt before consulting Dr. Wakina Love Temple, even though I tried day by day to adjust to the woman of his choice but he didn’t see my efforts.
-At the end, I was put in a better position with my Hubby by Dr. Wakina love spell via his email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. I’m 7 months pregnant already at 52. It’s a magical work of Dr. Wakina that restored our dream.
