If you have "technology-aggressive" local K-12 districts in your area, they
may be beginning to hang up the 1/2" VHS and moving to MiniDV. I saw the
bigger richer districts in my area begin that transition and begin stowing
the 1/2" in the back room.
I know that's a problem for classroom playback, but minidv to VHS dubs is
certainly something that student library assistants could handle.
So you might check with local K-12 and see what they're up to.
But in the bigger picture (no pun intended), let's not have VHS last as long
as 16mm has! :-)
Just a thought or two,
