HDTV explained. With the help of Oompa Loompas and hobbits.

hdtv-explained.jpgIt’s fair to say that HDTV isn’t the easiest subject to grasp when you first think about upgrading your rubbish old telly. 720p? 1080i? What are they? And what’s the difference? And what do they mean for my collection of Eric Prydz videos, hmm?

There are plenty of excellent HDTV resources online, including our very own HDTV UK blog. But if you want a friendly introduction to the subject, you should click here right now. It’s HDTV explained in cartoon form. With the help of half-pint fantasy creatures.

So if nothing else, you’ll come away with a firm grasp of why 1080i suffers from being powered by a bunch of dope-smoking hobbits working on an outsourcing basis for some Oompa-Loompas. Really.

  • Pretty good, but doesn’t really explain why you would want the Oompa-Loompas over the Hobbits and vice versa. Sure 720p is great for sports but you don’t need 60 fps for everyhing!
