What’s A VHS? … Blockbuster?-7.37

The Video Home System (VHS) was a standard analog technology mass adopted by consumers for the viewing of videos recorded on cassette tapes. The technology was originally developed by Victor Company out of Japan and was later adopted in the United States as early as 1977.

The technology was widely successful and popular, leading mass dissemination of video across the world. People could easily rent or purchase a video of their favorite film and bring it home and play it with a device known as a VCR a device which is now virtually non-existent, and reserved to exclusive use as a placeholder on dusty shelves in parents basements and seasonal visits grandparents homes who still champion the “archaic” technology.
