NASA Holds Briefing to Release Restored Apollo 11 Moonwalk Video

"NASA will hold a media briefing at 11 a.m. EDT on Thursday, July 16, at the Newseum in Washington to release greatly improved video imagery from the July 1969 live broadcast of the Apollo 11 moonwalk. The release will feature 15 key moments from Neil Armstrong's and Buzz Aldrin's historic moonwalk using what is believed to be the best available broadcast-format copies of the lunar excursion, some of which had been locked away for nearly 40 years. The initial video released Thursday is part of a comprehensive Apollo 11 moonwalk restoration project expected to be completed by the fall. The Newseum is located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W. The news conference will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed on the agency's Internet homepage."

Is this from the Australian Deep Space Network tapes that folks have been hunting for, or from somewhere further down the pipeline?

I don't think so. These appear to be from a NASA video tape of the NTSC converted signal sent to US TV networks. It was mentioned on the last page of the PC World article linked to this forum on June 29, 2009.

There was an article in Daily Express (UK) on June 28 stating that the Australian tapes have been found in storage in Perth, Australia.
