Since you are looking at a repository URL, try the svn cat URL@REV form:

svn cat svn+ssh://.../docs/video.pdf_at_54

The svn cat -r form is better to use when you want to cat a specific
revision of a file in your working copy e.g.

svn cat -r54 wc/docs/video.pdf

In the above form, svn cat will also follow rename history, AFAIK.

Cheers,
Raman
