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.
