What does VHS Mean?

Today’s technology is growing and changing quickly. Sometimes, it seems like it’s changing almost every day! While we try to keep up with the pace of technology, let’s take a second and reflect on our most favorite piece of tech that came out in 1977. 

That’s right, we’re talking all about the family favorite: VHS tape.

Those small, black rectangles held our fondest memories, our most favorite movies and seemed like they multiplied faster than gremlins. We know you probably had (have?) a box full of VHS tapes! How could you not? When the VHS tape was available for purchase, every home had to have one! 


So, if you’re a tried and true VHS lover, do you know what VHS stands for? It’s alright, not many people do! VHS stands for Video Home System. Do you remember having a Video Home System in the comfort of your very own home? Whether you were watching a movie you just purchased, rented or reliving a home memory, I bet you were smiling from ear to ear. 


Something was so simple, back then, about pulling the VHS out of it’s paper or plastic container and then sliding it into the VHS player. You’d hear all the mechanics, moving back and forth, and hear the click when it finally pulls the VHS tape in to play. If you’re like most people, you probably still have a bin or two filled with VHS tapes in your home or garage. It’s okay! We have a solution.


Because it’s been a while since you’ve heard the term VHS, and that most people don’t know what VHS stands for, it might mean that those precious tapes have been sitting in the dust for a while. Your memories are precious and you should be able to relive those special moments again and again! That’s why Southtree is here!
