  VHS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
VHS became a standard format for consumer recording and viewing in the 1980s and 1990s after competing in a fierce format war with Sony's Betamax and, to a lesser extent, Philips' Video 2000.
VHS machines, in contrast to Betamax and Beta's predecessor U-matic, use an M-loading system where the tape is drawn out by two threading posts and wrapped around the head drum (and other tape transport components) in a shape roughly approximating the letter M.
As mentioned, VHS was the winner of a protracted and somewhat bitter format war during the early 1980s against Sony's Betamax format.

 S-VHS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In VHS, the chroma carrier is both severely bandlimited and rather noisy, a limitation that S-VHS does not address.
As neither is changed from the VHS format, the linear audiotrack delivers sound quality scarcely better than AM radio.
Nearly all S-VHS VCRs are backward compatible with VHS tapes, meaning S-VHS equipment is fully functional as a legacy VHS record/playback unit.

And the VHS was there during the Flood of 1997, when livestock, domesticated pets and even horses needed to escape the raging river.
In addition, the VHS acts as a resource to pet owners in the Tri-State by answering questions and solving problems they are having with pets in their home.
The VHS also routinely sends out press releases to all the media in the area concerning tips, warnings, promotions, etc. It is not unusual to turn on the TV or open the paper and find the VHS in the news providing a service to the community.

The Vertical Helical Scan, better known by its abbreviation VHS or simply as Video, 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 September 1976.

The disadvantages with VHS are that although the quality of VHS is OK for the final product, copies made from VHS format tapes deteriorate rapidly in quality due to generation loss, and camcorders that utilize full size VHS are very bulky and heavy.
This is a smaller sized tape cartridge that the regular VHS tape, (the C stands for compact) and allows for a smaller, lighter camcorder.
Super VHS is also available in a compact VHS cartridge (30 minutes at SP), or full size (120 mins at SP) but this format is capable of a much higher resolution, and is a much higher quality format than VHS-C. The main problem with SVHS is its lack of consumer classl camcorder support.

 CNN.com - Is VHS obsolete? - June 26, 2002
DVDs are getting more popular, but VHS is still the dominant format, experts say.
The format does have its advantages: DVDs never have to be rewound, they can store extra features like outtakes and director commentaries, and it's easy to access different sections of the disc.
"The VHS format will decline naturally with the growth of DVD, but it's far too soon to write its obituary," says Bo Andersen, VSDA president.

My belief, however, is that the average consumer is so far beneath the target market for D-VHS that they'll puzzle over it about as much as they do the difference between VHS and S-VHS...

 Wired News: Digital VHS Takes On DVD
It can also record at the standard VHS resolution of 240 lines per screen width.
JVC was originally the Victor Company, which developed the VHS format in the mid-1970s and was bought out by Japanese investors that renamed it Victor Company of Japan.
With twice the resolution of DVD and a high definition recording option, D-VHS could give DVD a major run for its money, since the recordable standard for DVD still isn't set and now DVD discs are vulnerable to piracy.
