Convert 3/4″ U-matic to Digital & Ensure Your Memories Live On
U-matic tapes, commonly referred to as 3/4″ U-matic or simply 3/4″, are distantly remembered as one the earliest video recording cassettes released onto the market in 1971. U-matic tapes are also one of the first to include the tape inside a cassette instead of in an open, reel-to-reel format, which was revolutionary for its time.
They were originally intended for consumer use, but were way too costly to become popular in that market. 3/4″ U-matic could have met a fate similar to that of the short-lived Betamax, but it quickly became popular in the television broadcast industry for on-location video gathering and made the 16mm film format that had been used obsolete. Fast forward a few decades, and now, U-matic is essentially obsolete. As a result, transfering 3/4″ U-matic to DVD or digital files has become vital to ensure old memories and content live on.
Today, the format has largely been replaced by digital Betacam for broadcast television purposes, but many television facilities still store U-matic recorders for archival playback of footage shot in the 1970s and 80s.
U-matic decks haven’t been manufactured in years, so don’t be deceived by the fact that they are still available. Finding the proper equipment to play these tapes is getting increasingly difficult. It is best to transfer 3/4″ U-matic tapes in order to preserve your content in a more sustainable format.

“I am so incredibly fortunate that I found Current Pixel! My three beautiful daughters are all getting married in the next 3 years. My oldest daughter was about to get married and I needed to transfer her childhood VHS tapes to DVD to play at the rehearsal dinner. I needed to find a company I could trust with my treasured videos. My close friends recommended Current Pixel to transfer my priceless video tapes to DVD because of their customer service and decades of experience. The friendly staff turned a big box of tapes into exquisite DVDs that I will treasure forever. I adore you Current Pixel!!”
