Enhancing DVD Video for Big Projection in Cinema Hall

Jun 17, 2013 5:16 AM

I have a Wedding DVD project of 50 Mts duration. Now my client want it to be Projected in Cinema Hall for viewing of whole family. To-day I had trial run. Screen is too BIG screen is 37' wide, quality appeared to be poor.  Is there any way to enhance the VIDEO Quality so that Projected Image is acceptable.. I have very short time. Any help, guidance will be highly appreciated

    Was the project shot and edited in SD resolution, or did you

    shoot and edit in an HD format then export to DVD for delivery?

     

    If the shoot / edit was HD, you can go back and do another export

    in a format that is more appropriate for the projection.

    Make sure the DVD/bluray player does hardware "upscaling." This works better than trying to use software.

     

    Joe's suggestion of redelivery in bluray is best, but I assume you have no time for this event.

    Can you suggest any programme which can enhance the quality.

    Many have reported achieving good results using

    Magic Bullet Instant HD for upres of SD footage.

     

    Be aware that you will be cropping part of your 4x3 frame

    when converting to a 16x9 HD format.

    I have Magic Bullet Instant HD and it works BUT the results are varyable depending upon the source material and output format, Joe is correct about the cropping but there are options you can choose for the output

     

    I have achieved better upscaling using TMPG

     

    Virtualdub/avisynth does an even better job but is far harder to master.

     

    That said at the club I go to we regularly project DVD via our upscaling Bluray player with great results, it may be worth checking out some different players at your local Mall as the output quality does vary

     

    As for future, how about a media player such as a Western Digital, HDMI/component outputs, or for something cheap but great a Raspberry PI mini PC, there is a media player operating system available and you have that on an SD card and the video on a memory stick, mine works great on video encoded up to 30mbps so a 20mbps HD file plays great
