Dead Alive (Braindead) Rare VHS Sales Promo (1992)

Imperial Entertainment VHS Sales Tape

Soon after its release VHS sales caught up to Sony's Betamax, eventually surpassing it until now VHS is the worldwide standard. All because JVC engineers sat and thought and thought before they built a thing. So while the Betamax had a sharper picture, that's only a small part of the story. The rest of the story includes everyone who uses a VCR and that's where VHS beat Betmax.

1985 Sony Super Betamax vs. VHS promo sales tape.

The now-famous videotape format war of the late 1970s and 1980s demonstrated the speed with which the industry could tip in favor of one technology, and the devastating impact this could have on its competition. When the industry cast its collective vote for VHS in 1975, it took less than three years for the technology to overtake Betamax. In a subsequent market shift between 1999 and 2004, VHS sales were overtaken, and then quickly dwarfed, by DVDs.

Periphrastic Films presents The Hunt - DVD & VHS Sales

"The Great Time Machine" came out the next year and Beta's hope to be the dominate format in home video recording was soon to be vanquished. It really couldn't of ended up any other of way when you consider that ultimately all the public really cared about was the most recording time for the least money and what format their neighbors had. The things Sony was pushing, tape handling characteristics, picture quality and great special features didn't matter a flip to most consumers. Sony was mystified, everything they stood for didn't cut it this time. They were the symbol of excellence and now they had something superior and no matter what they did to try and save it, it was failing. They were very innovative, true to form for Sony, but VHS sales continued to rise and the Beta's market share dwindled to nothing. In retrospect Sony made lots of errors, from not being able to meet the demand for their video tapes early on, licensing problems, the Beta I fiasco (the Beta II only machine), insisting on using mini phone jacks for audio when the rest of the world used phono plugs, the confusing tape length numbering; the list goes on. It really stands as a testimonial to Sony's strength that they maintained there dignity and market image through all of it. A lesser company could of came out of it all as a broken down joke, but Sony didn't. I only wished they had continued on, recognizing that VHS was for the masses, and not treated Beta in the later years like the crazy aunt tied up in the basement.

Although the film was not a theatrical success the VHS sales and rentals tripled the film’s box office gross. So lets look at the Tremors story so far….
