Luiz - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil , I think VHS stands for: For me it stands for Video Home Scrap... But whichever the true meaning of these letters is, I'm sure it comes from some obscure Japanese dialect that means : -- WE GIVE UP, WE CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING BETTER THAN THIS CRAP, or maybe: -- WE WISH WE WORKED FOR SONY, or: -- WE DESIGNED THIS ON OUR ETCH-A-SKETCH... My guess is that the engineers from JVC did all kinds of drugs while attending college and now we have to put up with their s***. Thank God for DVD... BETAMAX STILL RULES!!! SL-500MD FOREVER!!!

Monika & Erika Mankewitz , I think VHS stands for: The lowering of consumer expectations. The abandonment of quality standards. The 'Dr. Evil' of video systems. The Windows 3.1 of video systems...
Fred , I think VHS stands for: It stands for video home system. And BFGL stands for "Betamax fans, get a life". I suppose you mourn the death of Super 8 home moves, and 8 track car stereos as well? The market makes the final decision, and it chose VHS not Betamax. Dry your eyes and get over it.
Olive Thomas , I think VHS stands for: 'the other white meat' in Japanese...
don Leo , I think VHS stands for: VHS stands for the idea that Video 2000 is the best system but it you want to watch porno you'd want some japanese piece of crop with the VHS logo on it
Lenny , I think VHS stands for: JVC deciding to be difficult. In all fairness, VHS isnt horrible, but no doubt Beta is technologically superior. Problem being, it went out of fashion before the technology got super reliable like it is now... Grrrr, JVC...
His Master's Voice , I think VHS stands for: Video Home System. Period. That's the only truth. Anyway, the best home video format was Philips/Grundig Video 2000. From the very early machine it featured perfect clear still and auto tracking. Even more advanced models had an exclusive motor for each reel making the transport response ultra quick. Problem: it was made in Europe and was extremely massive. However I still own my first Philips VCR and it works fine. My second VCR was an early SABA (OEM JVC) top loader with the tungsten lamp for the tape end sensor. The only thing I have had to change to this machine is the capstan motor belt (twice). It still works fine and have a very good picture quality. Even the color and the edges of the picture are better in this one than in other newer models.
His Master's Voice , I think VHS stands for: I've just remembered that when Sony decided to produce VHS machines they advertised them in Spain as "Videos Hechos por Sony", in English "Vcr's made by Sony". And don't forget that the converted colour carrier, the actual core of home video technologies, and of course Betamax, was developed by JVC. Tardismon

SSGX , I think VHS stands for: Not sure how old this site is, or how long ago anyone visited this little list, but I stumbled across it in a genuine search for the meaning of the VHS acronym... I'm struck with only one thought: you guys must not be from the United States, and I'm not saying that based on the Dutch entries (that is Dutch, right?)... I'm now 23 years old, born in 1980... And in my lifetime, all I've ever known is VHS... I'm familiar with Beta only through folklore...lol I find it odd to read some of you talking about VHS as something that is replacing Beta, when in this country, it already has replaced it, and it happened long before this site existed...lol Interesting cultural differences there...

Beta is dead (hurrah!!!) , I think VHS stands for: VHS stands for? Victor (company of Japan) Hated (Sony) and kicked the S*** out of Sony. As for Sony making better products? What a piece of sh*t the graystation poo is - absolute crap. The game cube is better than that dross (even the Saturn was better than PS 1). Finally I would like to say SONY SUCKS (BIG TIME) and congratulations on JVC costing them ZILLIONS of lost licensing over the years - I TAKE MY HATS OFF TO THEM.

Sonny , I think VHS stands for: VHS stands for Video Home System (originally Vertical Helical Scan), and is a recording and playing standard for video cassette recorders that was developed by JVC in 1976, and became the dominant standard in the 1980's after competing with Sony's Betamax. A VHS-cassette contains a 1/2 inch magnetic tape wound from one of two spools to the other, allowing it to pass over the reader head of the video cassette recorder. VHS tapes have an approximately 3 MHz horizontal resolution and 250 lines of vertical resolution.
