Helical Scan | Reel to Reel video transfer services reel to reel
Working with production and heritage companies in UK and Europe, our services support clients with small or large order conversion of all broadcast tape formats. We are highly experienced and recommended within the industry. Using the world leading AWS broadcast conversion machinery to process tapes we can guarantee the highest quality output at affordable prices.
EIAJ-1 was a standard for video tape recorders (VTRs) developed by the Electronic Industries Association of Japan with the cooperation and assistance of several Japanese electronics manufacturers in 1969. It was the first standardized format for industrial/non-broadcast VTRs using a helical scan system employing open reel tape.
The format offered black-and-white (and later colour) video recording and playback on 1/2″ magnetic tape on a 7″ diameter open reel, with portable units using smaller 5″ diameter reels.
Our heritage video tape digitisation service support clients with audio-visual video tape digitisation from 1 video tape to 1000's. Based around World Leading AWS conversion and Blackmagic units we offer archival preservation video outputs to include 10-bit uncompressed, FFV1 lossless for the recommended quality outputs in line with iASA Industry Standards. To include all Pro-Res outputs, Quicktime .MOV video files.
