Plasma Screen Television Resolution: HDTV vs. EDTV

When buying a plasma screen television, you will have to weigh many options, one of which is screen resolution. By far, the best resolution of current plasma screen displays have either 720p (progressive) or 1080i (interlaced) resolution. This resolution level is referred to as high definition. Some screens offer slightly lesser capabilities, displaying either 480 interlaced or progressive resolution. These screens are referred to as enhanced definition television or EDTV. Both standards are better than the resolutions offered by conventional televisions.
