What Is the Difference between HD Ready and Full HD?

Answer

There are two main types of High Definition Television; the HD Ready TV which delivers twice the resolution of standard definition TV. It comes with 720 horizontal lines of information in every single frame and great for watching HD television broadcasts and the Full HD TV which delivers 1080 horizontal lines per frame. This brings you an extreme level of real-life detail - perfect for watching films on Blu-ray Disc.

The difference between full HD and HD ready is that HD ready can display an image from an HD signal, whether it is a 1080 or 720 line format. However, it doesn't say anything about the resolution of the screen itself. On the other hand, Full HD usually means that the display has 1080 lines and it can show a 1080i image at its usual resolution.
The main difference between Full HD and HD Ready is that a Full HD display has a built-in HD-capable tuner whereas a HD Ready display is capable of showing high-definition signals, but does not have the integral set-top box for decoding them.
HD ready means that the television is able to display an image from an HD signal, whether it is a 1080 or 720 line format. However, it makes no claims concerning the resolution of the screen itself. Full HD generally means that the TV's display has 1080 lines and is able to show a 1080i image at its native resolution.
A HD ready flat screen has a resolution of 1,366*768 pixels. It displays the commonly used 720p and 1080i formats but the 1080i/180p signals will be downscaled to fit. A full HD has a resolution of 1,920*1,080 pixels which displays the 1080i/1080p signals in full without downscaling.
The difference between HD ready and full HD is that although HD Ready can accept HD video formats in 720p and 1080i, it may not display the full resolution from more advanced 1080p sources unlike the full HD.
