Given that most network programming is 24p, there's no surprise that 
1440 x 1080 should look better than 960 x 720 (the respective luma 
resolutions of HDCAM and DVCPROHD in 720p mode, respectively).  Both are 
progressively scanned.

I saw calls on the AVS Forum to compare live stuff, but it may be harder 
to find that.
