THE MAGIC OF KINESCOPE REPRODUCTION - HOW LIVE TV WAS CAPTURED ON FILM FROM NBC-TV-CIRCA 1949
So, the blog you're reading is called Kinescope HD. That's intended to be television irony at play, kids. If you don't get the joke, read...and watch...on.
Below is a rare, 7 minute, promotional film produced by NBC-TV in 1949, to explain the Kinescope process, one of television's earliest technologies, for recording LIVE programs to be re-broadcast on film in communities that had no network interconnection. This was before the advent of coaxial cable,in the early 1950's, which provided LIVE video and audio linkage between America's television markets and network hubs in New York City. Enjoy!!!!!
