Videotape - Videotape is any magnetic tape recording system that records video. While most people think of videotape in terms of the analog (VHS, BetaMax, Video8, etc,...) formats popular through the late 1990s. However, videotape can also be used to store digital video, including consumer formats like DV and D-VHS.
Videotape is also used extensively for professional digital video applications from news gathering to archival storage, although to some extent it's been replaced by hard drive and optical disc (DVD) storage. This is even more true in the consumer market where miniDV camcorders have largely been replaced by models which write to a hard drive or directly to a miniDVD.
