Early Television Museum
2007 Convention Presentation
Screening of the Earliest Known Surviving Color Kinescope Film Recording of NTSC Color, by courtesy of Research Video
Presented by Ed Reitan
This presentation at this year's ETF Convention will show the earliest surviving COLOR kinescope recording. It will certainly allow the attendees to see how good early NTSC color was - excerpt of a Dinah Shore Show and an Eddie Fisher "Coke Time" show from early 1954. A DaVinci color corrector pulled good quality color out of a faded reddish film print.
I have appealed to the owner of the clip for three years to show what he has, and he has finally agreed. Although the owner will remain anonymous, the access to the clip is being arranged by Research Video.
