VHS A Forgotten Format
VHS or Video Home System has now been relegated to the bin of redundancy, although it is still present in family archives today as cine film (super 8mm) was back in the 1980s - 90s. Although by today's standards it is cumbersome and lacks the resolution of digital camcorders, it enjoyed massive world wide appeal. Today biggest problem with VHS tapes is the disappearance of the humble VCR. meaning theses tapes are left in the cupboard or worse still garages, and in time the deterioration of the recorded image. Some tapes may be so old that VCR's that are in good working condition may not be able to play them. People who still own a VCR and wish to have it serviced or repaired would find the costs financially unviable. So if you have been considering have your collection of tapes transferred to DVD, now might be the time.
