VHS

From Spanking Art
A VHS video cassette.

VHS (Video Home System) is a recording and playing standard for analog video cassette recorders (VCRs). It was developed by Victor Company of Japan, Limited (JVC).

Originally launched in 1976, VHS became a standard format for consumer recording and viewing by the 1990s, after competing in a fierce format war with Sony Corporation's Betamax and, to a lesser extent, Philips' Video 2000.

Although still popular for home recording, the VHS tape has largely been replaced by DVD for pre-recorded home video content. As of July 2006, most major film studios have stopped releasing new movie titles in VHS format, opting for DVD-only releases.

Spanking videos on VHS[edit]

In the 1980s and 1990s, most spanking videos sold were on VHS cassettes. By the turn of the millenium, a mixed-media phase began in which videos were released both on VHS and DVD format. Today, new videos are generally released on DVDs only; only a few video producers still offer their films on VHS cassettes.
