VHS Support in Classrooms Ending [May 15, 2015]

ITS will no longer support VHS tape playback in ITS-supported classrooms as of 5/15/2015.

ITS recommends classroom users find digital sources for instructional videos or have relevant portions of videos converted to digital format for use in classrooms. VHS recorders will be removed as the rooms are refreshed over the next 2 years. During that time, even where a VHS tape player still exists in the room there will be no support for its use, nor repair in the event of a malfunction.

The UVa Library offers a digitizing service to assist with the digital conversion process. The Library also has a digital streaming collection of videos, movies, documentaries and other resources.

If you have questions regarding this change, please contact ITS Classroom Support.
