U-Matic Tapes to DVD

The U-Matic tape was first released to the general public in 1971. It was one of the first video formats to contain the videotape inside a cassette compared to the open reel style of the other systems. U-Matic tapes are also commonly called 3/4 tapes due to their width. Unlike most other tape formats, the supply and take-up reels in the cassette turn in opposite directions during playback, fast-forward, and rewind as one reel would run clockwise while the other would run anti-clockwise.

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 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?
