Standard-definition television

SDTVstandard definitionSD
Specifically, this term defines formats that deliver a picture superior to that of standard-definition television (SDTV) but not as detailed as high-definition television (HDTV).
Standard-definition television (SDTV or SD) is a television system which uses a resolution that is not considered to be either high or enhanced definition.

576p

576p25p264×640
The term refers to devices capable of displaying 480-line or 576-line signals in progressive scan, commonly referred to as 480p (NTSC-HQ) and 576p (PAL) respectively, as opposed to interlaced scanning, commonly referred to as 480i (NTSC) or 576i (PAL).
With doubled temporal resolution, 576p50 is considered enhanced-definition television (EDTV), regardless of the image being scaled the same way as an interlaced frame.

480p

Plasma display

Unlike 1080i and SDTV formats, progressive displays (such as plasma displays and LCDs) can show EDTV signals without the need to de-interlace them first.
Currently, plasma panels cannot be economically manufactured in screen sizes smaller than 82 cm. Although a few companies have been able to make plasma enhanced-definition televisions (EDTV) this small, even fewer have made 32 inch plasma HDTVs.

HDMI

To achieve EDTV, consumer electronic devices such as a progressive scan DVD player or modern video game consoles must be connected through at least a component video cable (typically using 3 RCA cables for video), a VGA connector, or a DVI or HDMI connector.
There are 19 pins, with bandwidth to carry all SDTV, EDTV, HDTV, UHD, and 4K modes.

Dreamcast

Sega DreamcastDCaccessories
The video resolution of video game consoles reached EDTV specifications starting with the Sega Dreamcast, becoming the first mainstream console with a VGA output, supporting EDTV.
A VGA adapter allows Dreamcast games to be played on computer displays or Enhanced-definition television sets in 480p.

Bandwidth (signal processing)

As EDTV signals require more bandwidth (due to frame doubling) than is feasible with SDTV connection standards (such as composite video, SCART or S-Video), higher bandwidth media must be used to accommodate the additional data transfer.
