What is HD video?
HD video refers to any video system of higher resolution than standard-definition (SD) video, and most commonly involves display resolutions of 1280×720 pixels (720p) or 1920×1080 pixels (1080i/1080p).

Why we convert HD to SD?
High definition video is far superior in color and resolution over SD video, but we do need to convert HD video to SD video from time to time, since SD video occupies less space than HD video, and it is much easier to play and edit SD than HD video. Not every player supports playing HD video. When you are going online with it, or when you’d like to play it back on your portable player, it is a good choice to reduce the HD quality to SD to get the video play smoothy and save capacity. How to convert HD to SD? In this guide you will learn the steps to convert HD video to SD video with Pavtube HD converter.
