  "If you've done any research into TVs, Blu-ray players, or Blu-ray in general, you've likely seen the alphanumeric 1080p24 (or 1080p/24).

Understanding what it is, and keeping a lookout for products that can take advantage of it, can result in smoother, more natural-looking movie and TV show playback. I'm not talking about the artificially hypersmooth look of the Soap Opera Effect, but instead the correct cadence of motion at which the film or TV show was shot. "

Easy, 1920x1080 @ 24hz. Movies are shot on film at 24FPS, have been since sound movies were created, so using 1080p24 eliminates the need for 4 : 3 pulldown.

The technology is changing.  You should look into 2160p  the new standard coming to TV and video.  Film technology is different and has several standards.Film can be Digital Cinema Initiatives 4K native resolution 4096 X 2160, DCI 4K which is also known as CinemaScope cropped 4096 x 1714, Academy 4K 3656 x 2664.So to answer your question regarding 1080p24.  The 1080 part means how many pixels high the video format resolution is.  The higher the number, the higher the resolution.  1080 is standard high definition television resolution.  There are two current types of 1080:  1080i, and 1080p.  The i means interlaced scan, and the p means progressive scan.  The 24 means the frame rate of the the video.  There is also 1080p50.  The original film makers intended you to view the film at 4K resolution or cinematic quality.  The new PCIe 3.0 graphics cards can handle data rates necessary to display 4K video content.  There are several somewhat pricy ultra high definition TVs on the market now.  Sony, LG and a few others.  They range in cost between $3,600 to $25,000.
