The good old school bus VHS video camera was a break through in its day, and unfortunately they are not being made anymore. Technology has moved on, you cannot even get the VHS tapes anymore. Also VHS recorders means that you and having to go to every bus each day to service, repair and rewind the tapes, this is extremely time consuming and costly. So what alternatives are available to you for upgrading? well you want it easy to use, record at least 1 week and do automatic recording over, easy to install so no extra costs, easy to get the video onto your computer and view high definition quality...for only $490 per bus

Walmart are only selling off stock. No one is manufacturing VHS tapes anymore. Once they have gone they have gone.

Also what happens when your VHS recorder starts braking down. The major suppliers like Seon etc would advise that you upgrade because of the cost of new parts, labour etc. Again they do no not manufacture these recorders anymore.

So you can say Myth dusted, but the only thing busted here is old VHS recorders. The problem for school transportation is what they do next when their VHS recorders need replacing as some of them out there are on borrowed time. So Transport/Admin managers are now faced with digital video camera solutions which need PC's and software knowledge...so the learning curve needs to be easy, and the solutions easy and simple to use
