RE-UPLOAD: Pink Floyd live in Hakone 1971 - 1DVD - pro-shot

Pink Floyd
Hakone Aphrodite Festival
Hakone, Kanagawa, Japan
6 and 7 August, 1971

Source: VHS [Master?] > MPEG2 > DVD-R > DVD Shrink > TS

This is 1971 Hakone incomplete rebroadcast source. It's much better than RonToon's tape.
The rebroadcast footage of 1971 Hakone 8mm is from a music show named "Best Hit USA" on TV Asahi in 1988. It was aired during the intro, and "On the Turning Away", "Learning to Fly", and "The Final Cut" were aired in the show, too for Pink Floyd's visit to Japan.
It is very short footage, but in the best quality ever.

The original long version aired within a Japanese local TV channel "Television Saitama" (the program named "Sound Super City") in June 30, 1983.

Remaster Process:

Virtual Dub Temporal Smoother filter applied at 75% setting.
Tmpgenc simple color correction: Brightness setting 30, Contrast setting 110
Audio EQ'd and normalized using Cool Edit Pro 2

Other Notes:

This is my first attempt at a "remaster". I am not a miracle worker and the quality of the source tape prevents major improvements in the overall quality.
Audio has four major gaps of silence. These appear on every source I've seen from this show.
Video is very dark. Most of set two is hard to see because of the issues in the original taping of the show.
Use of Temporal Smoother removed most video niose but can have a blurring effect. This is the "lesser of two evils" in my opinion.
