Captured from a D-Theater HD DVHS Demo Tape by http://www.techmoan.com/
Posted here (on my supplementary channel) as it has a copyright claim on the soundtrack.

In 2002 D-Theater launched in the US – the dealers needed a demo tape of HD footage. JVC reused some HD video that had been shot as a demo for the Japanese HD market back in 1993.
This footage would have most likely been originally used for a HiVision MUSE Laserdisc demo.
You can tell the year is 1993 by the adverts in Times Square – the Radio 501 CD that’s advertised on a billboard came out in 1993 and Paper Moon is playing at the Marquis Theater.
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.
