The number indicates the number of minutes recording on the tape in a VCR's highest resolution and fastest recording speed. However, the number of minutes attainable from such a tape is variable depending on the features of the VCR video recorder. For instance, most home VCR units have "extended play" or "slow play" modes to capture more time on a single tape. Many security VCRs also feature extended real-time recording and / or time-lapse recording options to help conserve tapes.
