a high band video recording process for VHS that increases the picture quality and resolution capability.
A "high band" high quality version of VHS. S-VHS requires special recording and playback equipment to take advantage of its higher quality. S-VHS quality can hole up to multiple generation dubs very well. S-VHS uses the Y/C signal, which splits the luminance and chrominance signals to preserve quality.
same specifications as VHS with double resolution. good format for industrial production and editing. Excellent quality system for distribution
A videotaping format that uses S-VHS tape that produces a higher quality image than standard VHS.
A variant of the VHS tape format that provides better picture quality by storing the video signal with a wider bandwidth, and by keeping the video signal's brightness and color information separate.
Super-VHS. Advanced VHS video standard with better picture quality. Special S-VHS video tapes and S-VHS video recorders are required.
Super VHS, an enhancement of the basic VHS format.
High-band version of the VHS tape format which records luminance and chrominance separately on special tape to give a high- quality image with over 400 lines of resolution. Usually this is accompanied with a Hi-Fi track recorded diagonally on the tape before and thus underneath the video using a different modulation frequency.
Acronym for super VHS (Vertical Helical Scan). Similar to the VHS video recording standard except that the chrominance and luminance data are treated as components that provides higher quality video.
high resolution video recording format
Super VHS. This format displays better resolution than standard VHS, but still doesn't approach the quality of DVD. No prerecorded material is in this format, but it can be used in the home for better quality recordings from digital satellite or cable.
An enhanced version of the VHS video cassette system. The 'S' stands for Super and offers superior picture quality from video tapes - but you need a compatible VCR, tapes and socketry to take advantage of it.
Super-VHS: 1/2-inch videotape format with 400 lines of resolution.
Super VHS. Better than standard VHS, not as good as DVD. A S-VHS recorder will allow you to record programs in up to 480 lines of resolution (a standard VHS will only record/play 240 lines of resolution. S-VHS VCRs will allow you to play standard VHS tapes. Also, a Super-VHS VCR will have at least one S-Video output & input. In theory, a S-VHS tape will give as good quality playback as DVD, however, because it is a magnetic tape it still suffers from the same drawbacks of standard VHS such as tape degradation and deterioration.
Super Home Video System
VHS format video cassette recorder that can record and play back s-video signals. See: S-Video
"Super-VHS. A 1/2 in. analog videocassette format using cobalt modified ferric oxide tape. It has improved picture quality compared with standard VHS. S-VHS-C uses a mini-cassette." (AMIM)
Super VHS. A recording and playback format requiring an SVHS VCR. As the name implies, it's better than standard VHS, producing about 480 lines of resolution. (Standard VHS displays about 240 lines.)
Super-VHS. An improved version of VHS with consumer, not broadcast quality. It works by separating b/w and colour signals, thereby achieving a sharper image and less colour distortion
Super VHS. A higher-quality version of the VHS videotape format, with better definition, resolution, and S/N ratio. Comparable in quality to Hi-8.
An improved version of the VHS tape format capable of recording better picture resolution (definition). A higher density of tape is required which provides a wider luminance bandwidth resulting in sharper picture quality (greater than 400 horizontal lines vs. 240 for standard VHS).
Super VHS. A superior (and more expensive) version of the VHS format
Super VHS format in video recording. A newer standard proposed by JVC, preserving the downwards compatibility with the VHS format. It offers much better horizontal resolution up to 400 TV lines. This is mainly due to the color separation techniques, high-quality video heads and better tapes. S-VHS is usually associated with Y/C separated signals.
Super VHS. Enhancement to regular VHS that offers improved luminance resolution. (400 lines or so.)
A modified form of the JVC VHS video record format that produces higher quality results by recording/playing back S-video (i.e. Y,C) signals.
An enhancement to regular VHS that offers improved resolution.
Super VHS is a higher quality video cassette format giving better picture resolution than a standard VHS tape.
Abbreviation of uper ideo ome ystem. Video standard that achieves a high video quality. It separates brightness and colour signals.
Super VHS. A backwards compatible, improved version of VHS.
Super VHS--a 1/2 inch videotape format with resolution and color handling superior to standard VHS. It is of higher quality than most consumer video, but is considered the low end of professional-grade video.
Abbreviation for Super VHS. A video format in which the two parts of the video signal, the chrominance and luminance, are recorded and played back separately providing for better picture quality. (Not to be confused with S-Video which is a transmission method). S-Video Transmission method for video in which the two parts of the signal, the chrominance and luminance, are sent on separate transmission lines to provide better picture quality. (Not to be confused with S-VHS which is a videotape recording method).
(Super Video Home System) Improved version of the VHS tape (records video that can be replayed on a television) that records with better picture quality.
(Super-VHS) videotape format similar but superior to VHS and VHS- C in that it contains more picture information, and increased resolution. S-VHS requires a special cable that carries chroma and luminance information on separate wires.
Super VHS (Video Home System). An enhancement of the VHS videotape standard using better recording techniques and Y/C signals. The term S-VHS is often used incorrectly to refer to s-video signals and connectors.
Introduced in Japan in 1987, S-VHS (Super VHS) is an improved version of the VHS standard for consumer video cassette recorders.
