“My New Year’s resolution is 1080p”

"My New Year’s resolution is 1080p is a jocuar New Year’s one-line saying that has been printed on several images. 1080p is the resolution for high-definition television (HDTV).

“My New Year’s Resolution is 1080p” was first posted on Twitter on January 1, 2009.


Wikipedia: 1080p
1080p (1920x1080 px; also known as Full HD or FHD and BT.709) is a set of HDTV high-definition video modes characterized by 1080 horizontal lines of vertical resolution and progressive scan, as opposed to interlaced, as is the case with the 1080i display standard. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a resolution of 2.1 megapixels. It is often marketed as Full HD, to contrast 1080p with 720p resolution screens.
