Archive Digitisation

Happy Ireland Productions (HIP) provides a full photo scanning service, film processing, and any digital transfer to DVD as part of our archive digitisation services. Part of our film processing services is cine film transfer and we also convert PAL and NTSC. There is no videotape transfer service that we can’t provide and the same goes for all types of cassette tape transfer. Consequently, we have been providing our archive digitisation services throughout the island of Ireland since 1982. Our professional studio is based at 439 Lisburn Road in Belfast. We do all the digital media transfer and film processing on-site, and your material never leaves our office.

Our trusted services have lead us to work with an extensive list of local, national, and international customers such as the BBC, University of Ulster, UTV, RTE and TG4, documentary makers, archive facilities, historians and members of the general public with precious family home movies, videos & pictures. Our attention to detail to repair and reproduce footage, photographs, and sound recordings. By combining state-of-the-art equipment with meticulous attention to detail, we work hard to ensure recorded history is preserved and not lost through changing technology. We strive at all times to maintain our reputation of trust and reliability. It is our most valuable asset, and part of the reason why we always go the extra mile for our customers and service partners.
