(2) To record or capture. Although most TV stations have phased out videotape in favor of hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs), people still use the term "tape" to mean capture. The phrase "let's go to the tape" means "let's go to the recording." Although VCRs have long disappeared, consumers with DVRs may also "tape the show." See videotape.
