What should HDTV look like?
If you've been shopping for an HDTV set, you probably are wondering what HDTV should really look like. The TVs in stores aren't always displaying true HD (most of the time it's either stretched SD or DVD video). In addition, some providers' idea of HD is considerably worse than others.

Here are some actual video still images from various sporting events to show what HD can really look like. Click on the images below to see them full size. Note: dial-up users may experience a long download time for the larger images. Also, while some of the video was transmitted at 1080i, the equipment used to capture it operates at 720p. Therefore, all images have a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

All stills are from events that are copyrighted by the rights holders who created them. These images are shown for demonstration purposes only. No copyright infringement is intended.
