Helical Scan Tape to DVD
Helical Scan was a method of recording information onto magnetic tape. It was used to record TV programs in the 1960s, and by several storage sellers in high-end tape backup products. The helical scan is the same technology used in digital audio tapes and began in the VCR arena. It uses a spinning read/write head and diagonal tracks.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We operate through drop-in and collection with either our main headquarters in Belfast or through our partners. The respective team member will walk you through our process and get everything organised, it’s that simple! Once Happy Ireland Productions receives your order, we go through the necessary quality checks and inspection then begin digitising your precious memories into DVD or a digital file. You’ll receive your original media with your digital copies at the respective outlet you dropped it in.
Our experts and technicians are proud when we say we can digitise over 50 different formats of analogue media to your choice of DVD and USB or both! This includes a range of videotapes, records and audio tapes, cine film, slides and negatives. We challenge you to find a format we can’t transfer.
We ask for 7-10 business days for all transfer services upon receiving your media. However, we may need additional time to process your order due to the order size, promotions or public holidays.
Rest assured, you will not! During the inspection, any blanks will be documented in the final report which is included in your order.
Nope, we charge each tape individually regardless of content time. So one tape could be 30 mins long and another 8 hours long but you’ll be charged accordingly! Did we mention it’s affordable too?
