c'est vs il est
In a writing challenge we had someone describing the new TV they bought: "besides, it's high definition" -> "en plus, elle est haute définition". I'm have from mastered the rules for c'est vs il est, but the one thing I have learned is that when you have a modified noun it's supposed to be "c'est". Yet here we have "haute définition" preceeded by elle est. My best guess is that "haute définition" is to be seen as an expression and should therefore count as an adjective rather than a modified noun ?
