As you probably know, there's been a lot of discussion lately about video games running at either 720P or 1080P (or weird in between resolutions like Battlefield 4), and it got me thinking. 480P (or 480i) is still considered and classified as "standard definition."
But are we at a point now, as a society, where 720P should be "standard definition?" I mean, you'd be hard pressed to go back to to 480P and call that standard after years of 720P, 1080P, and even higher if you're one of those crazy PC video-games-men. I think we need to move forward and call 480P low definition, and 720P should be standard. I might go so far as to say that 1080P should be the new standard, but maybe we're not quite there yet.
Edit: People seem to be in agreement that 480P as "standard" is here to stay, so that's that then!
