Nikon P7800 Video: Difference between 1080*("star")/30p and 1080/30p settings?

Page 30 of the Nikon P7800 Reference Section of the manual titled, "Qual Movie Options" gives this information:

Option (Image size/ Frame rate, File format)

1080*/30p 1080*/25p (default setting)

1920 × 1080 (High)

1080/30p 1080/25p

1920 × 1080

So the difference between 1080*("star")/30p and 1080/30p settings is that the 1080*("star")/30p setting says "High". High what? High quality? Does that mean less compression? The manual does not elaborate. Files shot in each of the two settings seem to be the same size for the same length of take. Anybody got an answer?
