For a surefire way, almost as good as using a FirecoderBlue card with "SuperResolution" selected is a follows
Export your SD footage in Canopus Losless

Using VirtualDub with the following settings
Resize filter
New Size "Absolute Pixel" 1440x1080 or 1920x1080
Aspect Ratio Disabled
Filter Mode Lanczos3
Interlaced Selected, if original is interlaced

If your footage is 4x3 set Y1 and Y2 offset to 18

Sharpen Filter = 32

Smoother Filter set to 18
and enable noise prefilter

Select Video on the Menu, Select compression and select Canopus Losless

Select "Save as AVI" and set destination and file name

Bring the resultant file into Edius, select properties, make sure Lower Field first is selected and correct Aspect ratio (16x9)
NOTE The Canopus Lossless codec gives better results than HQ, Less Staircasing
