Re: NTSC or PAL over HDMI output

My question is how does PAL (or NTSC) which is a smaller resolution at (768 x 576 for PAL) get converted or stretched to be output at 1920x1080 on the camera?

It doesn't. If the camera is set to 1920x1080, that's what it will capture.

The PAL and NTSC standards were used for analogue TV and about the only parts of the standards of any relevance anymore are frame rates. PAL used 576 horizontal lines and when standard definition digital TV came in, it used a resolution of 720x576 or thereabouts. It has no relevance to modern High Definition video.
