Betamax tapes were a competitive tape to VHS tapes. Betamax is a consumer tape that was primarily used outside of North America. Betamax quality is superior to VHS tapes. The Betamax tape cassette is smaller than the VHS tape cassette. The Betamax cassette measures 16 cm X 9.5 cm X 2.5 cm, which is about 3 cm shorter and 1 cm narrower than the VHS cassette. Betamax should not be confused with the professional broadcast version, Betacam or Betacam SP.
Betamax comes in three different versions, BI, BII, and BIII.
How Can We Help?
We can transfer your Betamax video tape to DVD or harddrive or whatever. Like VHS video tape, Betamax tape is also degrading and we strongly recommend that the Betamax tape be transferred now. Many Betamax tapes we transfer are showing their age and once the quality is lost, it is gone forever.
