Our expertise in reel to reel magnetic tape transcription is unmatched within the industry.   We maintain an extensive inventory of fully functional and operational 7, 9 and 21 track tape drives and can recover and transcribe data from your legacy reel to reel tape media. 

Exploration data once transcribed can then be converted and reformatted as required.

OvationData’s advanced workflow process for this magnetic tape transcription ensures the highest quality data recovery and transcription, and has proven to be one of the most effective means available for carrying out this work. The age and condition of 7, 9 and 21 track tapes as well as factors such as storage condition and brand of media can be very influential in determining the likelihood of successful data recovery.  These factors often mean that there is only one shot to recover and transcribe this data successfully without permanent data loss.
