A transfer from VHS

A transfer from a VHS tape that dated back to 1981. The equipment fixes picture instability and removes colour noise. Muffled audio, which is sometimes a problem on older tapes, can usually be tweaked. Incredible though it may seem, time is running out to get the once ubiquitous VHS transferred to digital, as tapes deteriorate and equipment becomes scarce.
