At the Studio that I work at we are working 2k footage and we are down converting to 1280x720 since the projector that we have to show our work is 720p, but I keep wondering what are the differences (besides the obvious ones) between the 2 formats?
so you want to know the difference between 1280x720 and 960x720?
i would say that the 960 format uses a so called thin-raster while recording. so the original 1280 are downsized to 960 for recording (like hdcam is doing from 1920 to 1440). when it is played back, it is upsized to 1280 again so you have a norm. hd-signal once again. but using this thin-raster is for sure cutting some quality.
