This is a spectacular YouTube find! I'm used to videos from this era (the '90s) being blurry and soft but this one here is almost like it was filmed yesterday! The video, according to the description, was made as a demo reel to showcase D-Theater/D-VHS, a digital recording format developed by JVC.
For those wondering what HD video camera tech existed in 1993 - there are a few options, but it's likely that this footage was shot with a HDVS camera- perhaps a Sony SONY HDC-500 attached to a HDV-10 portable recorder which recorded on UniHi 3/4" tape
So awesome. I want more videos filmed of old NYC on D-VHS. Why didn't this format catch on?
Here's Techmoan explaining the D-Theater format and story.
