I have exciting news everyone - the complete video of the original October 12, 1988 NeXT introduction has been found, restored, and made public!

After an extensive search during pre-production of the 2015 film Steve Jobs (Sorkin), our team tracked down this long-lost video with help from a close-knit network of former NeXT employees. It was recovered and digitized from two VHS tapes, preserved, and restored.

Although the quality of the video extracted from the tapes is not optimal, it is the only copy of video taken at the event currently known to exist. If anyone knows of a better source, or has any other unseen footage on older formats they would like preserved and restored, email us at rediscoveredfuture@gmail.com.

Is there perhaps a version available somewhere where the audio isn't muted to crap?

Is there possibly a torrent version?
