How to keep quality for 720×576?

I’m making videos that will be displayed on 2nd hand 720×576 TV’s. Before I knew that specification I was making the videos at 1080p and the quality was right. This is a large scale installation with many TV’s synced together so I need the videos to be M2T and MPEG2 to fit with the system we are using.

I’ve tried exporting my 1080p project from premiere down to 720×576 MPEG2-DVD, (with top quality settings). I’ve tried making the video project 720×576 and exporting to that same size. I’ve tried converting the 1080 video down, (I’ve tried many programs including HandBrake).

The video just contains text scrolling up (like conventional movie credits). I’ve made this in Indesign to the same frame size as the Premiere file and exported to JPEG because InDesign doesn’t export to anything better than I can see and Photoshop doesn’t let me justify the text like it needs to be.

I have Premiere Pro CS5.5.

Any help would be great!
