Frequently Asked Questions

720p can be translated as 1280x720 and is usually known as “HD’’.

You can easily convert 720p to 1080p with the help of Movavi Video Converter. But note that converting a video from 720p to 1080p means scaling up the video image to fill a 1080p format, so the quality of the video will likely be lower.

Yes. 720p has an image resolution of 1280 pixels by 720 lines, whereas 1080p has a 1920х1080 resolution and provides a picture made up of 2.07 million pixels.

To create an HD MP4 video, download Movavi Video Converter and follow the simple steps below.

  1. Launch the installation file on your computer and follow the instructions on the screen. Once the installation is complete, the program will open automatically.
  2. Click Add Media, then Add Video, and select the files you want to convert.
  3. Click Video, then select the HD Video presets and choose one of the suggested formats.
  4. Click the Save to button and specify the folder in which the files will be saved, then hit Convert. The folder containing the converted files will open automatically.

Converting to HD makes sense when the input video file resolution is higher than the output file resolution desired. If you want to create an HD video from a video in a lower resolution, remember that the result will be of a lower quality.

HD cameras have a resolution of 720p or 1080p. These devices are used not only for personal purposes, but also for surveillance in the security industry.
