SNIVLLE'S PRODUCTION NOTES:

I received a copy of this show from a great trading pal from the UK. As he'd told me before we traded, it was indeed one of the best versions of the show to have ever circulated. To find high quality copies of classic 70s QUEEN shows is very, very rare. After carefully watching the disc a few times, I decided that there was enough picture quality remaining, underneath all the video noise, to facilitate a decent remastering attempt. It took close to 3 weeks of processing, remastering, revising, testing, and finally compiling, to come up with the finished product.

Snivlle is proud to take his remastering work from out of the Dino den and share it with the trading community. I hope you enjoy this new version. Included on the discs are 'Before & After' samples of both the audio and video.

It is an unfortunate fact of "video-geek" life that there are only 240 lines of resolution inherent in VHS recordings. This number can obviously not compare to the more the 540 lines of resolution seen in commercial DVDs. The motivation behind all "Snivlle Remastered Edition" DVDs is not to compete with commercial DVD quality; rather, it is to get older VHS footage as close as possible to the quality of SVHS or Laser Disc.

[Video Noise Reduction]
The original VOB files were extracted from the source disc using DVD Decrypter. The VOBs were then frame-served with AVIsynth into Pro-grade NLE (Non Linear Editing) Video/DVD production software. AVIsynth frame-serving was used so that a few very powerful AVIsynth filters could be used on the footage without having to re-encode at this stage, or without having to create 100 GB uncompressed AVI files. In particular, the AVIsynth filters used were UnDot, CNR2, and Guavacomb. In combination, these filters eliminate multi-gen VHS anamolies such as 'dotcrawl', chromiance shifting, and over all chromiance noise. The nasty chroma disturbances are removed WITHOUT affecting the actual picture details. Please note as well, that the aforementioned filters operate as *true* 32 bit floating point software. In other words, no math rounding occurs which would result in less accurate frame-serving.

Various video noise samples were captured and analyzed from the original footage. Careful video temporal de-noising was applied to remove a substantial amount of analog VHS noise and mpeg-2 artifacts. This portion of the video processing was carefully calculated to ensure that maximum results would be achieved WITHOUT disturbing the integrity of the original picture. I use the "NeatVideo" noise reduction plug-in in Highest quality/High resolution mode.

[Video Encoding]
Snivlle Remastered Editions are never mpeg-2 transcoded! All of my DVD projects are frame-served and encoded with Cinema Craft Encoder SP. The Cinema Craft Encoder is recognized within the DVD Production industry as the leader in high quality mpeg encoding. In order to maintai

It's weird....
All seeders from http://www.jamtothis.com are also seeding the queenzone-torrent now.
The weird thing is the fact that I have made a new torrent for queenzone (because the jamtothis.com one is connected to my upload/download account-info there.

Anyway....have a good download

I have checked the most bad part of the concert (procession) between this DVD and the flac file from Queenhouse.de and I can say that the source is from the same tape, but also that the audio on this DVD is better remastered than the file on Queenhouse.de

It's almost unbelievable that the irritating noise in the beginning of procession, on the DVD, completely is removed !!!

Yeah Bokki, its infact almost unbelievable, how the disturbing noise at Procession is completely removed.
A lossy version though! HeHe!!!
But what a god loss in this special case...
Audio quality is in fact just like mine.

This is def. the very best Earls Court version, until now, maybe a little bit to dark???
BTW. where´s the long awaited Boxset??
I always hoped, it will contain things like Houston and Earls Court, but I´m afraid it will never be released.

Sorry but am I the only one who thinks that the audio track is terrible ? Too much hiss reduction, "limiting", noise removal and of course endoded to a shitty ac3 even when there's a lot free disc space for lpcm ?
Frank's audio is WAY better !
But still the video track is pretty good, but thetradersden version has more detail and this one has an incorrect aspect ratio
