Enhance Your Video with Higher Resolution

By Emily Watson, Thursday, Dec. 29, 2016

Case 1: "How do I increase my video resolution from 480p to 720p. I am uploading my video in Youtube. Any program, maybe?"

Case 2: "I have video file (MP4) of 176X 144 resolution and is going to make a VCD with this file. But it'll become blurry when watching on TV. So can I improve the resolution or video size?"

Solution: Resolution refers to the number of pixels per unit of area displayed on a screen. 720p, for instance, is usually known as HD resolution and contains 1280 x 720 pixels. Increasing resolution is one way to enhance video and get better picture quality. This post will introduce an effective video quality enhancer to increase video resolution without losing quality. You can use the software to enhance CCTV video image, improve dark video, upscale 480p to 720p/1080p/4K, and more.
