New Transfer Method Proves Itself!

This is an exciting one. We just got back a transfer of the earliest (almost) full Farbrengen recorded on video – Yud Shevat, 5731 – 1971.
The video was restored ten years ago, but now we retransferred it with DC Video in Los Angeles.

 This was transfered from a 1/2 " open reel tape into an 8 bit uncompressed file.   

A classic example of our hard work paying off: lots of research travel, and testing on our part, and hours of sweat piled on top of decades of experience on the part of David Crosthwait and his team at DC Video.
 
G-d willing, we’ll all be enjoying the results for years to come.

As soon as the transfer arrives some members of our team (and a couple of visitors) view the results

As the person who did the first transfer 10 years ago... I am very pleased to see the improvement! Tapes made in those early days often had video problems and sometimes a change of the playback equipment and approach can yield significant improvement. I have nothing but the highest respect for the work done by David at DC Video. Congratulations on a great job!
