Have a bunch of D-VHS articles I've found in some magazines here and there. Though I might share them here.

I'll keep adding more as I find them and get them scanned in.

This first one is from the July/August 95 issue of Video Magazine! Affirms what I've been telling people as how D-VHS was initially a SD format before it became HD.

Thanks for sharing those articles! Still own a player plus a small selection of movies and every time I watch one of those I'm seriously impressed by the quality and soundstage...

You're welcome

Here's another, but it isn't D-VHS per se.

It's from another 1995 issue of Video Magazine. It talks about an HDTV VCR from a company called "Captain" where they provide not only the hardware but also pre-recorded movies for said VCR (and both items were FAR from affordable)!

I can only imagine that this was actually a rebadged (I mean literally--looks like that logo plate is just plastered on there!) W-VHS VCR, as the only other HD videocassette system back then that I know of is in Sony's HDVS line, and with all of those being gigantic Pro type decks this being one of those is highly unlikely.

I would LOVE to know what movies they made available for purchase. These titles would most likely be the 1st means consumers could get officially get movies in any type of HD in North America (despite the insane prices.)

Now that I look more closely, the barely discernable logo on the top right of the front bezel of the deck might actually say "W-VHS"

And here's a JVC/Victor HR-W1 deck, so yeah . . . that was a rebadged W-VHS
