ITU-R HD standards

Following are the ITU standards that govern digital high-definition TV. Rec. 709 originally specified resolutions of 1,125 and 1,250 lines but added 1080 lines in 2000 to conform to digital TV (DTV).

In 2013, HDMI 2.0 added support for Rec. 2020 resolutions (see HDMI). For standard definition (SD) component digital standards, see Rec. 601.
