Helical Scan / Reel to Reel video transfer services
The EIAJ-1 Sony reel to reel format from the early 1970s offered black and white video recording and playback on 1/2" magnetic tape on a 7" diameter open reel, with portable units using smaller 5" diameter reels. Later EIAJ-2 supported colour.
The machines utilized 1/2 inch reel to reel tape on 30 minute 5 inch reels or 60 minute 7 inch reels.
By transferring your reel to reel recordings to DVD you can future proof your memories, ensuring you can watch them again and again.
We are able to convert any region (NTSC, PAL etc) to DVD.
Each DVD is personalised to your requirements. Chapters, interactive menus, background music can all be added.
No matter how big or how small each order is, the same care and dedication is given to all.
