    In 2002 D-Theater launched in the US - the dealers needed a demo tape of HD footage. JVC reused some HD video that had been shot as a demo for the Japanese HD market back in 1993.
    This footage would have most likely been originally used for a HiVision MUSE Laserdisc demo.

    You can tell the year is 1993 by the adverts in Times Square - the Radio 501 CD that's advertised on a billboard came out in 1993 and Paper Moon is playing at the Marquis Theater.

    For those wondering what HD video camera tech existed in 1993 - there are a few options, but it's likely that this footage was shot with a HDVS camera - perhaps a Sony SONY HDC-500 attached to a HDV-10 portable recorder which recorded on UniHi 3/4" tape.

    Beautiful :mjcry:

    Well, 93 is the year of the first WTC attack.

    Early 90's were my childhood years. A time when things were more affordable and hipster transplants were at a bare minimum. That NYC is dead and won't ever come back. Everything now is condos and gluten free cheese and wine shops.
