    No. of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed.
    1366 x 768 [WXGA]: There are 2 resolutions for HD broadcasts 1) 720p = resolution of 1280 x720 pixels ~ 1 megapixel 2) 1080i -= resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels ~ 2 megapixels There is no 3rd resolution of 1366 x 768 in any HD source. A 1366 x 768 image is ALWAYS SCALED
    It is all about firmware scaling engine ( video processing chips ) in the display. A huge amount of processing has to happen to make 720 into 768 or 1080 down to 768. In a Good display with a great processing chipset, the 1080 incoming resoultion is 2 times what the display can show, and since it has twice the information it needs, the 1366 display can really do a great job. Some displays do a fantastic job of resizing and de-interlacing. Some 1366 displays do such a fuzzy job of scaling that the image seems about the same as regular TV, just bigger and wider, not Higher in Definition.
