Advance Australia Fair - Verse 1

These images were recorded on NTSC-broadcast format BASF Super High Grade videotape using the NEC VHS Movie High Speed Shutter model V40U camcorder. Graphic image capture was accomplished using a JVC HR-S6900U VRCPlus+ S-VHS deck, viewed on a 13 inch Philco model C1930QGY TV, and digitized on an Apple //gs using AST- VisionPlus Enhanced digitizer card and Allison (Ver. 1.0.5 1990, 1991) software. Allison and .SHR files were converted to .png and .gif file formats, respectively, using SuperConvert 4.0. The .png files were converted to .jpg using Abode PhotoShop 5.0.2 and saved in web-friendly .jpg format using JPEGView 3.3 on a PowerMac G3. This html document was begun on the Apple //gs using WebWorks 1.0 & Teach 1.1 and tested with Marinetti 2.0.1 TCP/IP engine and Spectrum Internet Suite 2.2 browser. It was further polished on the G3 using SimpleText Ver. 1.4 and tested using Netscape Communicator 4.61.

The audio file was captured from the same videotape using the Apple //gs HyperStudio digitizer hardware and SoundShop 3.14 software, and saved in uncompressed .AIF file format. The 8-bit monaural audio file was tested on the G3 using Apple Quicktime 3.0 player and SimpleSound. On the Win95 side, the html document was tested using IE 4.0 and the audio file was tested using Quicktime 4.0 for Windows.
