Hi8 Tape to DVD 

To offset the introduction of the Super-VHS tape format, Sony introduced Video Hi8 tape. Like S-VHS, the Hi8 tape was used to increase the recorded bandwidth of the luminance signal to 400 lines. Hi8 cassettes were widespread throughout the 90s because of their compact size and quality. Especially because they could fit into a camcorder for home video recording. Unfortunately, Hi8 players are not in the mainstream anymore. Consequently, it is increasingly difficult to watch movies in this format. With tape degrading over time, the best way to preserve the memories they hold is to convert Hi8 to DVD or digital.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How Does It Work?

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.

What Can I Digitise?

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.

How Long Does It Take?

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.

I Think My Tape Or Film Could Be Blank, Will I Be Charged?

Rest assured, you will not! During the inspection, any blanks will be documented in the final report which is included in your order.

Do I Get Charged By Video Length?

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?
