SDTV

Standard Definition Television or SDTV refers to digital transmissions with 480-line resolution, either interlaced or progressive scanned formats.

SDTV offers significant improvement over today's conventional NTSC picture resolution, similar to comparing DVD quality to VHS, primarily because the digital transmission eliminates snow and ghosts, common with the current NTSC analog format. However, SDTV does not come close to HDTV in both visual and audio quality.
