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.
The U-Matic tape is another system that is no longer used for everyday recording. It had to give way to the digital age. Luckily, we can take your old U-Matic tapes and transfer them to DVD so that you can enjoy them again. Our trained staff transfer all formats in-house to ensure the highest of standards.
