The seeds of ARS Video were planted 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. Knowing the value of preserving memories, they made a commitment to producing high quality products and maintaining a superior level of customer service from the start. Over a period of 10 years, that dedication took ARS Video from “night time” work with one machine to a full-time business with several employees and ever expanding machines and equipment.
This is where the second generation of family joined the business. Gary, Gloria (shown in the picture with Gary’s 6 grandchildren) and Art’s son, acquired the company in the late 1990s. With Gary’s knowledge of computers and understanding of the changing technological environment, he brought ARS from analog to digital. He transformed ARS Video into a technological environment that offered faster services with improved quality at a reasonable price.
In 2020, significant investments were made to upgrade our systems. A new film scanner was purchased. This equipment captures 8mm/S8mm, 16mm & 35mm film in High Def (1920 x 1080.) It is the same system used by the Academy of Motion Picture Film Archives. We can also scale up video tape transfers from Standard Def to High Def. We provide the final product on a DVD or flash drive which will play on your PC or TV.
Through it all, superior customer service has remained our hallmark enabling us to grow and prosper. The high level of repeat and referral business we enjoy is a testament of our clients’ satisfaction.
As a family business, we at ARS Video know all too well the value of memories – past, present & future.
FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS, our commitment is to preserve your memories for generations to come…. because your story never ends.
