Here is part of an early evening Action Newscast from Thursday, July 29, 1976. Broadcast Pioneers member Larry Kane is the anchor, with Jim O'Brien on weather and Broadcast Pioneers member Joe Pellegrino on sports. On this broadcast, Don Tollefson did a news story report on the "Action Cam." It was not a sports story.
Our transfer comes direct from a WPVI-TV 3/4" video tape. However, it is a generation down. Why? Well, this 3/4" recording consisted of various reports. This was taken from an aircheck and then dubbed onto the final 3/4" tape. The copy we have did have some problems. While all the other cuts on the tape were fine, this particular one had low contrast and was dark. With today's digital technology, we can lighten the video and restore it to what it should have been. However, the recording is not as sharp and clear as we would prefer. In our opinion, the Real Video version is slightly clearer and cleaner.
