How Our Digitization Services Work:

We are a 36-year, family-owned and operated national business. We specialize in Film and Video Digital Transfer Services for individuals, families, and institutions. We also provide Pre-Construction Video Services for businesses. We treat our customers as we would like to be treated, which includes fair pricing (see our prices on our Pricing Page) always.

You can either bring in your materials to Tallmadge, Ohio or ship them to us. The majority of our customers are out-of-state. Make sure there is tracking on your package, as we have never had a problem with any tracked packages. Also, please fill out and include a packing slip in the box.

When your order is complete, you will be contacted and can either pick it up or make payment and have it shipped back to you (including all your original media items.)

We also back-up your files in case you need another copy in the future.

When you put the new USB Flash Drive that contains all of your converted media files in to your TV (all TVs have USB ports) or computer, you will see a list of all your film reels, tapes, photos or audio files based on your labels. Simply navigate to the one you want to watch and press enter. The files can be renamed on your computer, uploaded to your cloud service, and copied to share with family and friends!

Please know that you can call us any time during work hours and you will speak to a real person. We actually enjoy talking with our customers!

Our film and video transfer service gives your precious family memories a new life while preserving them for generations to come. It’s our pleasure to offer our digital conversion services and expertise to you!

About Us

The founding of ARS Video occurred in 1987 when Gloria and her husband Art bought a film transfer machine from New York and started transferring people’s precious memories as a part-time business. We offer audio and video transfer services to digital formats throughout the Ohio Valley and North America, with professional shipping and delivery.

I cannot thank you enough for rescuing our video that was full of mold and broken! And creating a beautiful DVD for my family to treasure forever.

I will never be able to thank you for getting it done before Christmas too!

Recently I used your services at A.R.S to convert my family’s 8 mm films into DVD and VHS tapes. I would like to thank the person or persons involved in processing them. The music that was chosen blended well with our home movies and was most fitting. I was delighted and pleased at the quality and wanted to take this opportunity to tell you so. The results surpassed any expectations that I had.

Thank you once again for making our family movies most memorable.

I just wanted to let you know how much my family enjoyed the videos we had done. The sound effects were absolutely perfect. It was obvious a lot of work went into it and we very much appreciate it.

I’m telling everyone I know to take their home movies to you for transfer.

Thanks again,

Betty F.
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on our video for our wedding reception. It was absolutely incredible!

I want to thank you for a wonderful transfer! The “slowdown” & “added music” Great! Was a wonderful holiday gift for family!

Last fall I brought you a film from the 60s to be put on DVD. You did an excellent job. The colors were bright and the sound effects and music were perfect.

I must tell you that I sent the same film to a company in Chicago. This company claimed to do excellent work and I wanted to see if there was a difference – just for the beck of it.

I want you to know that your work was superior in comparison and less expensive. I don’t know why but this Chicago company’s copy was less colorful and sometimes changed from very dark to very bright or whitish. It was horrible. Their background music was boring. You were great in varying the music to the mood or activity.

I am so pleased with the DVDs you produced from our old 60s and 70s 8mm film! My two daughters and their families watched it with us over the holidays and we laughed and cried together!

No one could have done it better and the music and sound behind the scenes was perfectly selected! Can’t say enough good things about you!
