cinch has come across a nice rarity..
hinted at earlier..
a set of u-matic tapes:
pics of the deck and tapes:
format : u-matic tape
title : return of the jedi telecine
year : 1983
condition : average, sound/video drop-outs
color : a little dull, with some parts blown out
sound : mono
data about tapes:
2 tapes. one has 4 reels (i think), the other has 3 reels.
transferred off a VO-9600 u-matic sp deck.
1 channel audio only.
scotch uca-60 and uca-75 tapes
the telecine might be an rca tk66 or similar with tube cams.
they didn't have a scope attachment (hence i think it
was done on a filmchain) so they transferred it flat.
zoomed in quite a bit, edges are cropped off (see credits)
a friend gave it to him, and it has never
been played until now..
cinch located a u-matic deck, and hooked
it up for a video transfer, and then converted
it to a raw digital capture.
i have a 1000x480 WMV conversion of it.
pm me for the links ONLY if you can re-host
it on other file sharing sites, usenet, and
i'll post more information, screenshots,
and details as they come up.
