HD - What is high definition?
High definition is a term to describe the television screen's resolution. SD - Standard definition is an old method of stretching the image across the television screen, thus causing the quality of the image to be affected. The image itself is made of small dots called pixels. When these are stretched, they lose quality and appear blurry. With HD however, the image will fit perfectly on your television screen, whatever the size. The finish you are left with is a high quality visual with stunning colours.
