Both "P" progressive and "PsF" progressive segmented frame pictures 
are the same. Both are true progressive scan pictures. The difference 
is a transmission and storage trick: the progressive frame is 
segmented into even and odd scan lines and placed in an "interlaced" 
pair of fields. No vertical filtering  is applied, no change takes 
place to the actual picture, it is just conveyed in a manner that 
makes it compatible with display on a CRT monitor and with certain 
tape transports.

The process is completely reversible so that you can always recover 
the original progressive frame for further processing.
