VHS & VHS-C Tape

VHS was developed by JVC in 1976 and became the standard in the home video industry. Typical tape lengths were 120, 180 and 240 minutes with the 180 being the most common. These times can double if recorded in LongPlay.

There is also VHS-C - a camcorder tape which is a smaller cassette and has to go into an adapter to play back on a standard machine.

S-VHS and S-VHS-C are higher quality versions of VHS.
