The blu-ray disc supports all HD formats and resolutions up to 1080p. The progressive scan technology of the 1080p resolution is considered by many experts to produce the best image, but others feel finding the “best” is more a factor of matching resolution to the type of HD television, and the size of the display screen. So, if you are in the camp of the “1080p is best“, then this is the answer to the question.
DVD’s use SD, and they lack the necessary storage capacity to support HD. Anyone who has watched HD knows just how clear a picture can be, and how brilliant and lifelike the colors are reproduced. DVDs can not capture this quality, and this is the main reason behind the development of the blu-ray. The blu-ray disc will not only support HD, but the players will be able to upgrade the quality of existing DVDs to HD standards. Your DVD collection will not become obsolete, and the quality of the movies on them will be enhanced on the blu-ray players.
So, if you are looking for the best viewing experience with a blu-ray disc, you are most likely not going to go far wrong with 1080p resolution.
