Title Helical-scan video tape cassette system using 12,65 mm (0,5 in) magnetic tape on type VHS - Part 4: S-VHS video cassette system - ET-mode
Project Number 14829
Abstract/Scope The S-VHS ET mode records an S-VHS signal format on a VHS cassette. In this mode, several video signal system recording parameters are switched so that the signal characteristics recorded on the VHS tape are equivalent to S-VHS recording on S-VHS tape. Cassettes recorded in the S-VHS ET mode can be played with an S-VHS based playback system and an VHS equivalent that includes the SQPB function.
