What type of tape do I have?

There are quite a few different types of videotape formats.

We can transfer most of the different formats to DVD or digital computer files.

You can look at the different types of tape by clicking on the tabs left/below.

VHS tape

VHS (Video Home System) is the most widely-adopted videocassette format.

It was developed by JVC  in 1976.

VHS-C

A camcorder version of VHS.

You need an adapter to play back the tape in a normal VCR

Video8/Hi8/Digital8 tape

A very popular camcorder tape format.

Either Video 8 or Hi8 or Digital8.

MiniDV/DVCAM

A small digital tape for camcorders.

Records in a digital DV format or DVCAM

Betamax

A format that lost out to VHS in the popularity war.

Arguably better quality than VHS.

MicroMV

A tiny DV format tape which never really gained any popularity.

Betacam SP

This is a Professional format tape used by broadcasters before the advent of digital recording.

Visually very similar to Betacam tapes
