Attention: Converting DVD to Full HD isn’t Equal to Improving Video Quality

I’d like to correct a common misunderstanding. Many people take it for granted that converting DVD to FHD 1080P means converting DVD to HD quality as well. Actually, such viewpoint is totally wrong. A normal DVD is in Standard Definition (720x480 for NTSC DVD, 720x576 for PAL DVD). Ripping DVD discs to 1080P doesn’t mean to improve DVD to HD quality! Just like a blurred picture, though you have upscaled the resolution, you will find that it is still a blurred picture. Therefore, you have to know the fact that even if you have upscaled the DVD resolution to 1080P, the video quality can’t be improved.

How do HDTVs and DVD Players Upscale DVD to 1080p?

As stated previously, common DVD resolutions are 720×480 pixels (NTSC) or 720×540 pixels (PAL). When you play a DVD on HDTVs and DVD players, it usually uses an algorithm called 'nearest neighbor' to upscale the DVD video. This algorithm looks at the four neighboring pixels of each blank pixel and guesses what color value it should be and add pixels to the image. However, this process may lower the optical resolution of the image and produce a blurry effect. Surely, TV or DVD player upscaling does more than that. It uses bicubic interpolation and bilinear interpolation to smooth and sharpen the nearest neighbor expanded image to enhance the DVD video quality.

But note that the quality of DVD upscaling cannot be compared to that of a native Blu-ray disc or HD DVD. This is because the scaling algorithm, whether it is applied by an HDTV or an upscaling DVD player, cannot add more detail than what is already present. In comparison to Blu-ray, upscaled DVDs may appear flatter and softer in the background, with less vibrant reds and blues.
