How do you change 480 to 1080?

480 refers to standard definition television signals in North America and it the number of lines that make up the image. (In Europe, 576 lines is the standard definition resolution). 1080 is the number of lines that make up a high definition television signal (720 is another high definition format although less commonly used). Up converters are used to allow 480 signals to be used on 1080 displays or to mix them into other 1080 content during production. The up converter takes a 480 line image and outputs the same image at 1080 lines. They are sometimes used in DVD players and other source equipment to allow standard definition material to share the same format as HD material. SD DVD players that have the feature will normally boast of a 1080 output or HD output. Do not be fooled: SD material that has been up converted will be in HD format but it is absolutely NOT HD quality. The amount of information in and SD signal is about 20% of a true HD signal. Up converting cannot add the extra detail so do not expect up converted material to look like HD.
