Interesting it was 2- sided, like a giant audio cassette

Reminds me of the Sony Elcaset

(they really do sound fantastic)

I think they did a really good job of making an instructional video to explain how their product worked without a word of spoken language.

It must of been hard to put up with the existential horror of living with a machine occupied by a trans-dimensional eyeball monster though.

It's kind of the uh... Ikea instructions of video tape programming isn't it?

Yes, you have to live with a psychedelic robotic-eyeball creature but your calender always changes itself to the next day for you.

Supposedly this thing outperformed Betamax, which easily outperforms VHS. It's funny how there tends to be a strong inverse relationship between quality and popularity when it comes to videotape.

Not really. Higher quality = higher price = smaller market

Old_Zircon - 2013-07-26
I thought betamax and VHS were priced similarly in the beginning.

Phillips seems to be on the cutting edge, always making video machines that are better than everything else but no one buys.

Higher quality = Less capacity = Less content per dollar

Actually, the probable reason Video 2000 lost the battle to VHS was that Philips did not allow pornography on their machine. Although as we all know, pornography was not the reason for any family man's decision process...

Wikipedia says these things were marketed only in South America, but I could swear my 3rd grade teacher had one.
