"high definition" refers to 720p and above, with 1080p being Full High Definition and 2160p being Ultra High Definition

using superlative names for tech products is always a terrible idea

there are only six kinds of names in tech:
a) normal phrase with superlative
b) "what if we called it wi-fi... because it's like sci-fi"

d) a cool word, not necessarily english
e) acronym that describes the concept
f) Software Relations Working Group Standard Task Force ACCC 12589 rev. 6
