The newest video capable cameras and camcorders are sold with 1080p60 as featured capabilities. The newest TVs are the same. Premier Elements appears to be able to access 1080p60 files for editing but it won't render in that standard. Although the rendered video may look very good on a big TV, all of the presets for rendering are to lower quality. Adobe is not unique. As near as I can tell none of the current consumer level (under $100) video editors do it either. This could change as 1080p has only recently been included in the 2.0 version of AVCHD. Mentioned in the article is support of the AVCHD DVD standard that can play on Blu-Ray players. It is "HD", but the rendered file is 1080i.
