VHS is a consumer-level analog recording videotape-based cassette standard developed by Victor Company of Japan (JVC).
Several improved versions of VHS exist, most notably Super-VHS (S-VHS), an analog video standard with improved video bandwidth. S-VHS improved the horizontal luminance resolution to 400 lines (versus 250 for VHS/Beta and 500 for DVD). The audio-system (both linear and AFM) is the same. S-VHS made little impact on the home market, but gained dominance in the camcorder market due to its superior picture quality. Imagine Video has the professional VHS VTR decks, specifically designed for VHS. We can transfer a single tape or an entire library of tapes.
