Random information on the term “VHS”:

SECAM, also written SÉCAM (French pronunciation: ​[sekam], Séquentiel couleur à mémoire, French for “Sequential colour with memory”), is an analog color television system first used in France. It was one of three major color television standards, the others being the European PAL and North American NTSC.

Development of SECAM began in 1956 by a team led by Henri de France working at Compagnie Française de Télévision (later bought by Thomson, now Technicolor). The first SECAM broadcast was made in France in 1967. The system was also selected as the standard for color in the Soviet Union, who began broadcasts shortly after the French. The standard spread from these two countries to many client states and former colonies.

SECAM remained a major standard into the 2000s. It is in the process of being phased out and replaced by DVB, the new pan-European standard for digital television.

Work on SECAM began in 1956. The technology was ready by the end of the 1950s, but this was too soon for a wide introduction. A version of SECAM for the French 819-line television standard was devised and tested, but not introduced. Following a pan-European agreement to introduce color TV only in 625 lines, France had to start the conversion by switching over to a 625-line television standard, which happened at the beginning of the 1960s with the introduction of a second network.
