Presumably, 1080p can't be unfamiliar to every one of us. Many smartphones, tablets, computer monitors and even HDTVs nowadays adopt the 1080P full HD resolution. At times when you come across certain TVs, however, you might find them labeled with 1080i, you might be confused, what is the connection and difference between 1080i and 1080p, which is better 1080i or 1080p? I'll explain these and show you how to convert 1080i to 1080p (video) with a practical video resolution converter:
Now I'm going to ditch indigestible jargon and provide you with straightforward conclusions. Both 1080i and 1080p are 1920x1080 FHD resolution. "i" stands for interlaced scan and "p" stands for progressive scan. 1080i is common in HD channels on satellite and cable broadcast, even HD cameras and camcorders, while 1080p is commonly used in Blu-ray discs, online streaming, computer monitors, game consoles and more.
In practice, most people can't spot much difference. When watching some 1080i videos, especially those with the pictures of fast-moving people or objects, however, you can easily notice that there are a lot of strange horizontal lines or artifacts around. And 1080p videos, on the other hand, don't have related issues and look sharpener and smoother due to a higher scan rate, twice of the 1080i interlaced scan.
If those weird visual effects I mentioned above have ever occurred to you, and you have tweaked your device to 1080p mode already yet doesn't help, you should convert videos from 1080i to 1080p for better playback. Doing so also enables you to perfectly play the original 1080i videos on any device and platform.
Nowadays, most modern TVs are able to automatically convert 1080i to 1080p, whilst most mobile devices can't.
Of course, it takes professional software to process your HD videos so that there'll be no data damage during the conversion and the result is satisfactory.
