Technical Procedure for Enhancing Video Clips

 

The original video was shot in NTSC on a standard VHS cassette using a portable Canon VC-30 Hi-Fi VCR (circa 1984), a stand-alone Canon Vidicon color camera, and a tripod.  The duration of recording is approximately 1 hr. 30 min.  Actual service was longer, as original recording was stopped during parts of Mincha and Maariv.  A quick battery change was necessitated during the Valedictory Address so a few sentences by Dayan Binstock are missing.

The basic procedure is as follows:

  1. Video and audio processed and enhanced while copying to S-VHS cassette.

  2. S-VHS video converted to a single large MPEG-2 file at 640 x 480 pixels on a Dell workstation and written to a 4.7 Gbyte DVD.

  3. Video clips extracted from DVD and MPEG-2 files cropped and encoded in Windows Media 9 WMF format on a Dell laptop.
