What Are The Benefits Of Progressive Scan Video Vs. Interlaced Scan Video?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018
A progressive scan DVD player can convert the interlaced (480i) video from a DVD into the progressive (480p) format. If you have a television that can use the progressive format - and all HDTV and DTV sets can -  then a progressive scan DVD player can give you a significant increase in perceived vertical resolution and a more detailed and film-like picture.


All progressive scan DVD players can also produce standard interlaced video, so you can still use one with any TV. But if your TV is not progressive scan compatible, you won't be able to take advantage of the 480p quality.
