Steve Mullen at Digtal Content Producer runs with this definition of the Full HD 1080 logo program, claiming it is reserved for equipment with 1920×1080 content support at 60 progressive frames per second. Sadly Steve appears to misleading plenty of otherwise smart people like DV Guru (recently disbanded by AOL) and FresHDV in his good-as-gold definition of Full HD 1080.
Full HD 1080 definitely does not mean 1920×1080 at 60p in their camcorder line-up. The Sony HDR-SR1 camcorder bears the Full HD 1080 logo with a mere 1440x1080i resolution. That’s not what I would call “full HD” and it certainly is not in keeping with the Steven Mullen and Digital Content Producer version of the Full HD 1080 logo program. My take is Sony created the Full HD 1080 logo program as a marketing ploy to differentiate Sony products from other alternatives, implying that anything bearing the Full HD 1080 logo as better than other alternatives.
