HD footage with DVCProHD is 960x720??? Help!

So, I shot with our HPX500 and imported the clips using Log and Transfer. Codec is DVCPROHD but the resolution is 960x720 (PAL).

It makes no sense to me. We used to shoot SD (DV50) and then all footage was 720x576 anamorphic.

My final output will be SD DVD and/or web.

Our main edit suite uses a Mac Pro with Aja IoHD for viewing. But we also edit using iMac 27".
Should I ingest the footage as ProRes422 rather than DvcproHD?

That is correct. DVCPROHD is a "Thin Raster" format.
Ingesting to Prores will not really gain you any quality.
When making final output or master, you'll have a full 720p file.

Yup...as Chris says, there's no problem. 920x720 is an Anamorphic HD format.
