I doubt if there's a lot that can be done in EMC to enhance a still image - you'd need a dedicated graphics program such as Photoshop (or even Paintshop Pro) to work on it.

 

You could try the Open Source program, The Gimp, and see if that will do it for you. Although it's best known as a Linux program, there is a Windows version available here

Remember that snapshot is from a video that is probably 720 by 480. That will be around or less than 100 dpi with about a 8 by 6 size. That 100 dpi is really not good enough to print as is (you can't gain pixels)

 

A2 is 420×594 mm (23.4 x 16.5). so you want to enlarge that by about 3 times = 33 dpi. No way that the image will look anything but a bunch of rectangles.

 

I have Photosuite and Photoshop and I wouldn't even consider it.
