Blank Hi8 Video Camcorder tapes

To counter the introduction of the Super VHS format, Sony introduced Video Hi8 (short for high-band Video8). Like S-VHS, Hi8 used improved recorder electronics and media formulation to increase the recorded bandwidth of the luminance signal. Both Hi8 and S-VHS were officially rated at a luminance resolution of 420 horizontal TV/lines (560×480 in today's digital terms), a vast improvement from their respective base formats of 240 lines and roughly equal to laserdisc quality. Chroma resolution for both remained the same at 30 lines hor. 

Both S-VHS and Hi8 retained the audio recording systems of their base formats; VHS HiFi Stereo outperformed Video8/Hi8 AFM, but remained restricted to high-end machines. In the late 1980s, digital (PCM) audio was introduced into some higher grade models of Hi8 (but never S-VHS) recorders. Hi8 PCM audio operated at a sampling rate of 32 kHz with 8-bit samples—higher fidelity than the monaural linear dubbing offered by VHS/S-VHS, but vastly inferior to VHS HiFi. PCM-capable Hi8 recorders could simultaneously record PCM stereo in addition to the legacy (analog AFM) stereo audio tracks.

The final upgrade to the Video8 format came in 1998, when Sony introduced XR capability (extended resolution). Video8-XR and Hi8-XR offered a modest 10% improvement in luminance detail. XR equipment replays non-XR recordings well, and XR recordings are fully playable on non-XR equipment, though without the benefits of XR.

Video8 equipment cannot play Hi8 recordings. All Hi8 equipment can record and play in the legacy Video8 format.

We work with 8mm camcorder tapes for quick and high quality DVDs.

camcorder (video camera recorder) is an electronic device that combines a video camcera and a video recorder into one unit..

Equipment manufacturers do not seem to have strict guidelines for the term usage. Marketing materials may present a video recording device as a camcorder, but the delivery package would identify content as video camera recorder.

In order to differentiate a camcorder from other devices that are capable of recording video, like cell phones and compact digital cameras, a camcorder is generally identified as a portable device having video capture and recording as its primary function.  Camcorder tapes are easily convertable with Vintage VHS and we pride ourselves in our high quality work.

The earliest camcorders employed analog recording onto videotape.  Since the 1990s digital recording has become the norm, but tape remained the primary recording media. Starting from early 2000s tape as storage media is being gradually replaced with tapeless solutions like optical disks, hard disk drives and flash memory.

All tape-based camcorders use removable media in form of video cassettes.  We work with all the standard camcorder formats and even offer repair for respooling and patching of damaged regions.

Camcorder to DVD converstion are all done with high quality and your film will be preserved with a format that is easily duplicated such as DVD and Bluray.  Home movies are a great gift for friends and families as well and will salvage and preserve your special memories for a lifetime!  Camcorders that permit using more than one type of media, like built-in hard disk drive and memory card, are often called hybrid camcorders.  We work with a few hybrid formats; please contact us to check on availability and pricing for these.  support@vintagevhs.net
