Qn.1: Image extraction at best quality:

Within this question, the aim is to extract at best quality a specified frame from video footage recorded in different CCTV system file formats. Best quality should be understood to mean: minimum degradation with respect to its form within the source file, aiming for 1:1 pixel mapping. In other words, please submit the specified frames in this raw form without attempting to restore, e.g., true to life aspect ratio, or performing any other image operations.
