HD to SD Downcovert, recommended settings



I have content that is 16:9 HD that I want to downconvert to 16:9 SD , but I need to preserve the DAR 16:9. What are the recommended settings for this mediaconvert?

When I have tried going from 1920x1080 to 720x576 the resultant file has a DAR of 5:4

Hello Steve,

Do you need the resolution of the content to be 720x576? To maintain the aspect ratio of 16:9, you may want to instead select a resolution of 720x480 for SD with a pixel aspect ratio of 1.2121. Please let me know if this setting will work for you, or if you require the resolution of 720x576.
