The Internet Archive tries to preserve historical cultural assets on the Internet. You can find songs and books, but also video games and other media, mostly from the end of the last century. Now with VHS Vault a new "section" was opened", which invites not only for the older ones among us to browse:
Here you can find 21.000 digitalized VHS tapes for free viewing. The mix is quite colourful and ranges from animated or sports videos, documentaries and commercials to complete animated series and even some feature films.
The quality is already quite modest due to the analogue source. Thus the 4:3 VHS picture in NTSC consisted of approximately 500 lines with a maximum of 280-300 brightness information (thus about 160 oscillations per scanline). Such images are mostly digitally recorded with a resolution of approximately 240 x 320 pixels. Only later formats such as S(uper)-VHS or Hi8 were able to store the full SD transmission information in analog format (in PAL this was then a maximum of 768 x 576 pixels in digital resolution).
Quality or no quality - "content is king" and as a burrowing box for contemporary documents, VHS-Vault is definitely worth a visit...
