If you haven’t already guessed, about what speech will go, tell me. Today we will talk about VHS tapes.

There were times when we chose what to see on IMDb, and on these shelves.

What is VHS?

The format of the VHS tape was offered to a well-known manufacturer of electronics company JVC in the mid 70-ies of the last century. You could even say that it marked the transition to the real unification of the formats before this, each manufacturer offered what he thought was right. JVC with their VHS was a serious competitor formats, Betamax from Sony and Grundig Video 2000 from Philips.

The basis of the VHS tape was a tape width of 0.5 inch (12,65 mm) and a length from 170 up to almost 500 meters. It was packaged in a plastic housing with dimensions of 188×104×25 mm. the Speed of movement of the tape head of the tape recorder amounted to 3,335 cm/s for standard 525/60 (NTSC, PAL-M)

Unlike VHS from Betamax

Are not going to go into detail the subtleties of the differences between these two types of magazines, just the major ones that have enabled these carriers to compete with each other.

Actually, Betamax tapes provide a higher recording quality video, but they are more complex and expensive. If this difference is somehow possible to neutralize differences in recording technology will not allow VHS competing with Betamax in terms of replication of the video. The fact that the latter use the technology of separate recording tracks of luminance and chrominance, allowing the replication of Betamax tapes with substantially lower losses.

It would seem that in the war of the two formats all the advantages on the side of Betamax tapes, which were supposed to allow Sony to gain a foothold in this field. There was the Japanese one small miscalculation. And mozetta was intended.

The secret of popularity of VHS

Oddly enough, the main reason for the popularity of VHS is that the creators of other formats adhered to strict licensing restrictions and did not agree to support pornography. The second factor had a great influence on the spread of the VHS format, which lasted until the mid 2000-ies, when he was replaced by DVDs. Only in 2003 the number of films released on DVD exceeded the number of films released on VHS. And the final product, officially released on these cassettes, in 2006, was the film ”a history of violence” David Cronenberg.

The last movie that came out on VHS.

The opportunity to buy the fruits of labor of the porn industry and the subsequent emergence of video recorders for VHS made this format a real hit, despite its many disadvantages. Already in 1985, was recorded signs of a clear dominance of VHS over Betamax.

According to various experts during the existence of the format in the world has sold about 900 million players for VHS. By the way, the last video recorder was released by Sony in 2016. That is, recently.

In addition to the usual VHS was still the compact VHS-C. photo adapter VHS-C to VHS.

Surely even the youngest of our readers had to deal with this format. This is further evidence of the spread of technology in recent times. Just fifteen years ago, VHS was easy to find, and now they seem so outdated format, that involuntarily pop up in my head the words ”dinosaur” and ”prehistoric”. Whether there will be. Soon modern 4K will be considered only from a historical point of view.
