1920 x 1080 is the picture resolution for full HD. The number 60i next to it refers to the number of frames the camera shoots per second. In this case 60. The “i” after the 60 means “interlaced” where 30 frames or fields are added to the other 30 to give a final frame rate of 30 frames per second. You will get less flicker when panning if you use the setting above this. In this case the “p” after the 60 means “progressive” where instead of interlacing the frames they are presented one after the other giving you a frame rate of 60 frames per second (computer monitors display their pictures progressively). The bit rate of 28Mbps is the highest in available in the AVCHD format. The higher the bit rate, the more detail recorded in the image.
If you shoot using MP4, you will see that your camera can shoot in 4k resolution at 30 frames per second. You will see that the picture resolution is now 3840 x 2160 giving much more detail in the video. To edit 4k you need an edit programme that will open 4k material, and a decent computer to run it. The other possible downside to 4k is the amount of data it produces, so make sure if you use it you have some decent memory cards available for your camera.
I would seriously suggest you search You Tube and Google for some tutorials to give you an understanding of the various standards and technical terms. I say this because of your comment about not understanding much of my previous post. It will help you and make shooting videos much more pleasurable.
