    In TV the picture is displayed by scanning process from left to right top to bottom. In normal TV they use interlaced scanning process, for one picture need two scanning process first it scan the odd lines and than the even lines. In progressive for one picture only need one scanning process.

    On DVD's, it is fast-forwarding like on VCR's. Normally DVD Players jump to different frames(images), in increments. In progressive scan, you still see the motion, however faster.

    In VCR's when you fast forward, the image is moving, however, it has a flicker of some sort. In Progressive scan, that does not exist.

    Its a technology that makes stuff on the TV look better. I don't know the technical details.

    The alternative is interlacing, like in old tvs.
