I'm sorry, but you're wildly off base with your resolution figures.

What you're quoting as horizontal resolution is, in fact, the vertical resolution, and even then, only approximations.

Real numbers (from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-VHS)

        * 350Ã--240 (250 lines): Video CD
        * 330Ã--480 (250 lines): Umatic, Betamax, VHS, Video8
        * 400Ã--480 (300 lines): Super Betamax, Betacam (professional)
        * 440Ã--480 (330 lines): analog broadcast
        * 560Ã--480 (420 lines): LaserDisc, S-VHS, Hi8
        * 670Ã--480 (500 lines): Enhanced Definition Betamax
        * 720Ã--480 (520 lines): DVD, miniDV, Digital8, Digital Betacam (professional)
        * 720Ã--480 (400 lines): Widescreen DVD (anamorphic)
        * 1280Ã--720 (720 lines): HDV (miniDV tape), D-VHS, HD DVD, Blu-ray
        * 1440Ã--1080 (810 lines): HDV (miniDV tape)[1], HDCAM
        * 1920Ã--1080 (1080 lines): HD DVD, Blu-ray, D-VHS, HDCAM SR (professional)
