[ How It Works ]

Give Your U-Matic Tapes a New Lease on Life

In September 1971, Sony released U-matic tape to the world, an analog recording cassette that was one of the first to contain the tape inside a plastic cassette. The ¾-inch wide videotape inside the cassette was able to turn in opposite directions enabling play, fast forward and rewind functionality.

The problem for many U-matic tape owners is that it can be hard to find the equipment to play their tapes on. Either equipment is hard to come by, extremely expensive, or something that owners simply do not want to have cluttering up their homes. A much more convenient option in terms of both playback and storage is to have your U-matic tapes converted into a more modern format, such as DVD or MP4.

Bringing U-Matic Tapes Into the Digital Age

When your tapes are converted to a digital format, they instantly become easier to access, view, and store. You can also share them with a wider audience and loved ones, who would love to rediscover special moments from the past. Memories that you may have forgotten will suddenly come flooding back when you have the right way to play and enjoy your old tapes.

You can choose to have your U-matic tapes transferred onto DVD using our video transfer service, or you might want to store them on your PC or in the cloud in MP4 format. Whichever you choose, you can be sure that our team will create your digital copies to the very highest standard.

Video Tape Repair

Due to their fragile construction, video tapes can be susceptible to damage and deteriorate in as little as 10 years. At the very least, they can become distorted and difficult to watch. The good news is that our video tape repair services can not only fix damaged tape, but our experts can also protect your special memories further by transferring your videos to DVD or digital file format.


There is nothing like reliving happy memories with others, especially if they were memories you shared together. If you have a special moment on film or video tape, why not send it to us for duplication? We can create as many copies as you need and transfer your memories onto the digital format of your choice to give as gifts or simply keep as spare copies.

International Conversion

Sharing precious memories with friends and families overseas can be tricky. Different countries use different video formats and this could mean the tape or film you share may not be compatible. The good news is we can perform international conversion to NTSC, PAL and SECAM so that your loved ones can take a trip down memory lane with you.

Your memories matter and we're here to help.
