This is a screen that is shown at the end of a VHS tape. It is widescreen static with black bars. The static part wipes down and stays like that for a few seconds and then it usually wipes down again making the black screen go back to normal, but sometimes the tape rewinds before the black screen goes back to normal. On some VCRs, this ending looks a bit different.
