Term of the Week – EDTV

About.com's weekly feature is here again and they are talking about EDTV. EDTVs were big a couple of years ago in the plasma market when HD versions were considerably more expensive. With the price drops of HD plasmas and LCDs its hardly worth while to invest in an outdated technology such as EDTV.

From the article:

EDTV stands for Enhanced Definition Television. EDTVs typically have a native
resolution of 852×480 (480p). 852×480 represents 852 pixels across (left to
right) and 480 pixels down (top to bottom) on the screen surface.
