Super VHS or S-VHS VCRs and cassette tapes are nearly identical in appearance and operation but backward compatible with VHS. Older VHS VCRs cannot play back S-VHS recordings at all but can record to an S-VHS tape in the VHS format. Many newer VHS VCRs offered a feature called S-VHS quasi-playback or Super Quasi-Play Back (SQPB). SQPB lets VHS players view (but not record) S-VHS recordings, though reduced to VHS-quality. This feature is useful for viewing S-VHS-C camcorder tapes.
Later model S-VHS VCRs offered a recording option called S-VHS ET. S-VHS ET is a further modification of the VHS standards that permitted near S-VHS quality recordings on more common and less expensive VHS tapes. S-VHS ET recordings can be viewed in most VHS SQPB VCRs and S-VHS VCRs.
To get the most benefit from S-VHS, a direct video connection to the monitor or TV is required, ideally via an S-Video connection. (Wikipedia)
If you have S-VHS video tape recorded either in a proper S-VHS format or just in VHS standard (often S-VHS tapes recorded as VHS were being used by wedding production companies for better quality masters), bring it in. Here at National Video Centre we can convert it to the higest quality digital standard, either to a DVD or a digital file.
