Video reproduction comes in so many different packages today because of the many different ways in which it's transmitted or accessed. We all remember the days of early TV broadcasts which have been largely replaced by cable TV. The debate between which is better Betamax or VHS (Vertical Helical Scan, later changed to Video Home System) ultimately resulted in the lower quality of the two, VHS being adopted. Broadcasted TV signals still remain and later on some even carried HD signals. As time progressed along came DVD playback, Digital cable, and High Definition TV. The debate here is in regards to their quality and lines of resolution. This thread is meant to be one of loose discussion as long as everyone plays nice.
