Windows Media Video High-Definition. The video most of us are used to seeing on our TVs today, called standard definition, has at most 480/576 visible lines of detail, whereas high definition video has as many as 1,080. High definition video looks sharper and clearer than regular video, especially on big-screen displays. It actually comes in two different resolutions, called 1080p and 720p.
