History Of VHS Tapes


VHS stands for video Home System a tape format that was engineered by Japan Victor Company (JVC) in the 1970s. During that period, the two major players in the market were JVC and Sony producing the Betamax although Philips, MCA, Panasonic and RCA were producing there tapes too.
The VHS cassette consisted of a hard plastic cover held in place by Phillips head screws on the outside and a magnetic tape in the inside that data was recorded too. The VHS won the war to become the most popular tape format due to the fact that it could rewind and fast-forward and also JVC also got backing from Mitsubishi and Sharp.
In Hollywood, top movie companies i.e. Walt Disney Pictures adapted this already popular format distribute their movies like The Lion King. In the late 2000 though, this popular way was replaced by DVD which was much more convenient in portability and cheaper.
