[Also known as Progressive Scanning] An HDTV resolution variant where each scan displays every line in the image raster sequentially from top to bottom (see 1080p).

Progressive scanning is considered superior to interlaced scanning for full-motion video displays, because there is less jitter, particularly for the portrayal of objects that move diagonally or vertically across the screen.  The improvement is especially noticeable for fast-moving images, typical of television and DVD programs.  Another advantage of progressive scanning is the fact that it is required for satisfactory video on TV sets that use micro displays, plasma displays, or liquid-crystal display (LCD) flat panels. The improved image quality afforded by full HDTV is well suited to the extra-large-screen displays used in home theater systems.
