From the 1980s through most of the 1990s, the Video Home System (VHS) dominated the theater of video recording and video watching.  The introduction of the VHS was the start of a new era; people now had the ability to plug any film they wanted to watch into their television.  The objective of this blog is to explore the antecedents to the VHS, such as the VTR invented, by Charles P. Ginsburg< in the 1950s opened the door for the creation of VHS in the 1970s.  Its purpose is also to examine the actually invention of the VHS, its battle versus Sony’s rival Betamax tape, and the impact the VHS had on the society in which it dominated and how it set the stage for home video today.
