    Post Apollo 16 footage played on Ampex VR-2000B

    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.

    Can you give some background about where the tape came from? It looks like NASA edited (in the non-conspiracy way) footage, to be distributed for non-live broadcast or schools/cinemas or something.

    You would have to ask Zdenek. But I already have in his YT video.
