    Basically taking a lower resolution image & expanding it.

    PAL TV has 576 lines of resolution but a projector could have say 720.
    The scaler will take the 576 lines & fill the space of the 720.

    The scaler can't add extra information but if it works skillfully can fill the 720 lines and gie you a good picture.
