SD to HD Upconversion
on Apr 14, 2007 at 8:00:21 pm

Anybody have much experience with upconverting 16x9 SD footage to HD? We have some realitively new Ikegami SD cameras and have been looking at the Specs of HD cameras and there chips and wondering if we got a good uprez device would we be in the same ball park in quality as the HDV cameras or even DVCpro HD cameras that lower there raster anyways.

The video you get from your SD cameras is never going to be as sharp as HD, but you can get decent quality with a little upconverter. I really like AJA Video's converters. I would give this one a look http://www.aja.com/html/products_rackmount_FS1.html, or Cobalt Digital has a very small converter that does a good job as well, http://www.cobaltdigital.com/product.details.php?ID=49. Both I think are around $4000.
