Apollo 16 footage played on Ampex VR-2000B
« on: 08/24/2017 06:40 PM »
On my request, Zdenek digitized his 2 inch Ampex Quadruplex reel labled Apollo 16.

Thank you very much Zdenek for making this possible.



More might come from an other, much bigger +10inch reel that may contain Apollo 17 footage.

2 inch Ampex Quadruplex reel, labled Apollo 16 being played on restored Ampex VR-2000B. Contains AS 16 Launch, live footage and splashdown.

Raw unedited footage of the tape from 3:01

Uploads to internet made by me in case YT source goes down:

This video file has been downloaded from YT with 4kvideodownloader set to original resolution, MP4.

As long as the YT link is still up, it is preferred as it naturally has less compression than this download. That is the nature of YT video and lossy codexes, it is out of my hands.

This looks more like Apollo 15 footage rather than Apollo 16.

It's Apollo 16.

See about 12:40 when Charlie Duke makes his javelin throw.

The launch scene is Apollo 15 because that mission launched earlier in the morning (9:34 AM).
