    1080i is a resolution (1920x1080 interlaced - 60 half frames per second). Similar resolutions are 720p (1280x720, 60 full frames / sec) and 1080p (1920x1080, 60 full frames / sec).

    H.264 is a video compression technology. 1080i-H264 means the resolution is 1080i and it's compressed with H.264. MPEG-2 is a similar compression technology but it doesn't compress as much.
