Hi all, does anyone know if there is pc software around that will do a dvd upscaling from 480p to 720p (maybe 1080p for people with displays capable of that)?
I have my pc hooked up to a panasonic pt-ae700 and send out a 720p resolution over dvi to hdmi cable. I've had a look at some of the movie traliers in 720p res and these look great compared to dvds which are realtime upscaled using either a software played on my pc (or is it the video cardís overlay) or my dedicated dvd player. I assume that the upscaler built into my projector or pc has to be pretty quick and therefore less accurate that it could be.
So Iím wondering if there is any software out there that will take its time over the upscale process and therefore produce a better looking end result by taking more of the surrounding pixels, next / previous frames, etc into account when doing its interpolation thing. Iíd assume that if you give a several times realtime (4 or 5 hours per hour) it should be able to do a better job.
Iíve done a few googles, but havenít found anything and figured someone here may have looked into this. Any ideas much appreciated.
