Jay G (67) I "know it when I see it" quality. Something that technically is Hi-Def, but is not crisp and clear is not real hi-def to me. Bad photography is bad photography no matter what equipment is used to film it.

Drooler (220) Dimensions usually do it for me, but as JayG pointed out, only seeing is believing. 1.5 GB of "hi-def" dumb camera work, dim lighting, and dodgy editing will diss the damn thing pretty quick.

pat362 (375) Screen resolution is what I use to determine if it's HD or not.

Parsnip (12) If it looks good, it's HD-enough

BobA (7) Usually, it's a combination of dimensions, bitrate, and the original source capture (camera) being in high definition. Usually with those 3 you will get a "Hi-Def" picture.

You can pump up the dimensions and bitrate of a crappy source (like an old VHS tape), despite a big file, it won't be real hi-def cause the source isn't hi-def.

Or, you can have a hi-def capture, and high dimensions, but if the bitrate is low, you'll have blocky/blurry/aliased picture - won't look good.

All three are important for a good hi-def picture... but typically with higher bit rates and resolution, you get a increasingly large file. Many productions will say 1080p... but with a lower bit rate, it won't look as good as it could.

TheSquirrel (53) I put "other" because for me it's a mix of dimensions and bit rate. I suppose we all know what it looks like, it's a case of how do we define it. I agree with BobA about the original source as well.
