I have a DVD player that upconverts to 1080p. Will a Blu-ray player look significantly better on my HDTV?
Absolutely. An upconvert DVD player simulates a high-definition picture (1080p or, in some cases, 1080i) by analyzing the existing pixel information on the disc and crunching a lot of numbers to intelligently predict what the surrounding pixels should look like. The resulting picture, though noticeably improved when compared to a standard DVD picture, isn’t truly high-definition because the content on the DVD is not high definition. No DVD player is capable of matching the picture quality of Blu-ray Disc.
