Wow, TV sucks. Apparently the live broadcast moon videos from the 1969 landing were actually much better than we’ve ever realized. The camera used to film the footage wasn’t capatible with TV specifications and had to be downgraded to be put on the air. How’d they do that, you ask? Easy! They pointed a normal camera at the TV screen showing the high-res images and broadcast THAT image to the world.
I guess data conversion has always been a problem, huh?
