An image resolution of 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels tall.

Originally a standard for HD (high-definition) television, it can refer to the resolution of video content, the recording capability of a video camera, or even the pixel dimensions of a display.

720p is lower-resolution (and therefore delivers less detail) compared to 1080p.

See: 1080p
