Television and Video Glossary
Don't confuse these three terms. VCR refers to any video cassette recorder, including 8mm or Beta. VHS stands for Video Home System, first introduced by the Japanese Victor Co (JVC). VHS  refers to videocassettes with specific physical dimensions, tape dimensions, and recording format, and the recording equipment that uses such cassettes. A VHS cassette can contain programs in any of the formats NTSC, PAL, or SECAM, and purchasers of videos in gift shops  should be aware of this. VHF (very high frequency) refers to a portion of the frequency spectrum, approx. 50 to 200 megahertz, used for broadcasting and includes TV channels 2-13.

The videocassette recorder, VCR, or video recorder is an electromechanical device that records analog audio and analog video from broadcast television or other source on a removable, magnetic tape videocassette, and can play back the recording. Use of a VCR to record a  television program to play back at a more convenient time is commonly referred to as timeshifting. VCRs can also play back prerecorded tapes. In the 1980s and 1990s, until the VCR was superseded by the DVD player and PVR, prerecorded videotapes were widely available for purchase and rental, and blank tapes were sold to make recordings.
