What is Nero AI video upscaling and how to turn on/off it?

Even people who are not so interested in watching movies may agree that watching videos in high resolution (such as Full HD, 4K) is a wonderful experience. With 4K monitors and TVs becoming more and more popular, are you still satisfied with watching blurry SD videos on 4K monitors or TVs?

What is traditional video upscaling?
Traditional upscaling or resize is the easiest way to stretch a lower resolution video onto a larger displayer. The pixels in the lower resolution image are simply repeated and averaged to fill all the pixels of the higher resolution display. The result is that the video fits a 4K monitor, but it usually looks blurry.

What is Nero AI video upscaling?
Nero AI video upscaling predicts high-resolution videos through an AI model and produces incredible clarity and enhanced details that cannot be reproduced by traditional upscaling, such as sharper edges, more realistic hair, and the landscapes with striking clarity.

There are two levels for the output quality: standard quality and high quality. With the “high quality” level, you will get a better output file, but it needs more time.

Convert – Nero Recode
In Nero Recode V24.x or higher versions, you will find the “Nero AI upscaling” and its AI hardware acceleration options in Output settings.
Recode_Nero AI upscaling_configure
Recode_Nero AI video upscaling_export
There are no special hardware requirements for the conversion in Nero Recode and the export in Nero Video. The general performance depends on the system performance. But the hardware limitation will not affect the output quality. We recommend running Nero AI upscaling on Windows 10 or higher 64-bit operating systems.
