Check out this rare HD look at New York City from 1993 in this demo for D-VHS – an rare HD variation that worked on S-VHS tape.

Though this demo came out in 2002, the footage itself is from 1993 (as told by the ads in Time Square) recorded by perhaps a Sony SONY HDC-500 attached to a HDV-10 portable recorder which recorded on UniHi 3/4″ tape.

This is an interesting mix of analog and digital tech – not the kind of sharpness that we get from today’s cameras while having that softness and low dynamic range of VHS tape – it sort of looks like HDV only it was recorded more than a decade before HDV hit the market.
