This paper reviews and compares the quantitative meaning of the term "resolution" as commonly used by the television industry and the film industry. The danger of using values of limiting resolution as the sole measure of picture quality is discussed. Conversion equations are developed and a table listing numerically equivalent values of resolution is provided.
