For the longest time, Media Services has helped patrons view movies on-site with over a dozen DVD-VHS combo players. Sadly, they’re falling apart and hard to maintain, and fewer patrons are using VHSes now than even a few years ago.
We’ve future-proofed ourselves by replacing the majority of our stations with new Blu-ray-DVD players. They’re smaller, faster, and have a number of built-in “smart” features (like Netflix playback) should we ever need those. Don’t worry: we’re keeping a couple VHS players around for those hard-to-find movies and special cases.
Come see them for yourself if you haven’t had to watch a movie recently. They’re pretty nice!
