Video transfer technology is a valuable and much used resource. Consumers and firms across the world can utilise video to DVD adaptation services to help them recover and enhance old footage and clips.
Often, such video transfer help is used by people eager to keep hold of moving and still pictures that run the risk of becoming inaccessible eventually because there will be no way of playing them. However, a recent incident in the US has highlighted more high-profile uses of such video to DVD adaptation provisions.According to a report on KHOU, old footage of late US president John F Kennedy unseen by most of the world until recently has been found. The images were captured at the Rice Hotel in Houston just hours before the politician’s death.
They show him and his wife Jacqueline, the first lady, reaching out to the Hispanic community. The home movie was taken by Roy Botello, who then kept it in his drawer in San Antonio home for nearly 47 years. However, he recently decided to take it out.Now, the item has been enhanced and donated to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealy Plaza in Dallas. Curator of the establishment Gary Mack said: “Who knows what questions are going to be asked years from now. We have this film that will be preserved forever.”
Meanwhile, commenting on his experiences of filming JFK, Mr Botello said: “Everybody went nuts. It was so loud. One time I was taking the video, somebody knocked me down. I just went with the camera straight up to the ceiling.” His film, which was taken in colour, is thought to be one of only two that exist from that night. In the other video, it is possible to hear Jacqueline Kennedy addressing the crowd that had gathered to greet the president. She made her comments in Spanish.
