Just out of curiousity here. Would it not be possible to use a microscope to take pictures of the pits and lands on a laserdisc and then use a computer to analyze the pictures and measure the distances between the pits and lands and then extract the video and audio information this way? Wouldn't this eliminate crosstalk and much of the noise inherent in watching a laserdisc via a standard player? Am I too far out in left field on this? I am just asking because I and many others want to capture some movies on laserdisc with the highest possible quality for archival purposes.
