 VHS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Video Home System, first released in 1976, better known by its acronym VHS, is a recording and playing standard for video cassette recorders (VCRs), developed by JVC (with some of its critical technology under lucrative licensing agreements with Sony) and launched in 1976.
A VHS cassette contains a ½-inch(12.70 mm) wide magnetic tape wound between two spools, allowing it to be slowly passed over the various playback and recording heads of the video cassette recorder.
The video bandwidth is achieved with a relatively low tape speed by the use of helical scan recording of a frequency modulated luminance (fl and white) signal, to which a frequency-reduced "color under" chroma (hue and saturation) signal is added.
