Windows Media High Definition Video

WMV HD makes it possible to watch stunning, high definition movies. Connect your Media Computer to a high definition display such as a plasma screen or projector and a surround sound system for an incredible cinema-like experience in your own home.

Just what makes high-def different? It comes down to video resolution. The video most of us are used to seeing on our TV sets today, called standard definition, has at most 480 visible lines of detail, whereas high-def video has as many as 1,080. High-def video looks sharper and clearer than regular video especially on big-screen displays. It actually comes in two different resolutions, called 1080p and 720p.

All this definition needs a powerful PC and Microsoft suggest a recommended configuration of a 3.0GHz Pentium 4 with 512Mb of memory and a 1920 X 1440 resolution video card.
