We use Adobe PPCS5.5. If you have this NLE i suggest you start with trying to set a white balance first by finding something in the video that I know is white or very close to it. Then I would work with the Levels control to ensure the blacks are black and whites are white and everything in between. After that I would attempt to set contrast and brightness after that I would go back to Levels and reset. I would use the color scope to try and get the colors centered. I would then use a g-blur to soften the noise and attempt using a noise reduction control possibly in AE. It will not be stellar but pretty sure it could be made to look better than what it is.
