Vhs Player

VHS ruled the home entertainment world for more than two decades. Sony created the DVD player in 1994, but the technology did not debut in the U.S. until 1997, due in larger part to copyright concerns from major movie studios. With early DVD players retailing for $1,000 or more, VHS remained the top configuration in the United States into the new millennium.

In 2001, retail DVDs topped VHS sales for the first time, capturing $4.6 billion of an annual $16.8 billion buying-and-rental market. However, only 25% of homes owning DVD players in 2001, and VHS remained the top rental configuration until mid-2003. The final nail in the VHS coffin came in 2oo6, when A History Of Violence became the final major Hollywood movie was released in the format.

A man who sold his VHS player online received a heartfelt letter from a grateful 86-year-old customer. Matt Shoukry, who posted a photo of the message on Reddit, was touched by the buyer who mailed him a thank-you note.

In the letter dated Feb. 10, the unnamed author recounted how he couldn't play video tapes on his old VHS player anymore and turned to eBay to purchase another one. When it arrived, the machine took him on a ride down memory lane.

Japan-based Funai announced earlier in July that it would cease production of its VHS player, which was sold under various brands worldwide. The company said it decided to cease production due to difficulties in acquiring components, according to Japanese-language Nikkei. The near non-existent market for the ancient home entertainment technology was also a factor.

The VHS player was a kind of technology from the late 20th-century known as a video cassette recorder, or VCR. The device used an electro-mechanical process to display or record audio and video via a thin strip of plastic film known as tape. The production of VHS tapes officially ended in 2008.

The VCR was a finicky technology, however. The machines would often chew up malformed tapes, and they had mechanical parts that required regular cleaning. Many players also came with programmable timers that were confusing and indecipherable.

A: VHS is a videotape cassette format that records both pictures and sound. VCR is the actual name of the player for this type of recording media. Because the Betamax format failed, there is really not much difference between the two terms, and as a result, they are basically interchangeable.

Notice: TVGuardian LT will work on many VHS/DVD movies, but not all. Most VHS/DVD movies contain Closed Captioning (CC), which is supported by the TVGuardian, but some contain SDH, which are subtitles for the hearing impaired and will NOT work for the TVGuardian. Closed Captioning is needed for the TVGuardian to filter accurately. TVGuardian does not support SDH. VHS/DVDs with CC played with HD up-conversion on the Blu-Ray players will be filtered by the TVGuardian. 041b061a72
