At ARS Video, we understand the value of your precious memories. With decades of experience in video transfer services, we’ve seen firsthand why choosing our professional digitization services for converting your old video tapes to digital formats far surpasses the DIY approach.

Follow along as we outline some of the benefits of choosing a professional video transfer service over DIY methods:

1. Commitment to Quality and Expertise

Since our inception in 1987, we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing the best video tape transfer services out there. We maintain video players for every video format since the 1980s. Our telecine film transfer units can transfer 8mm, Super 8, 16mm and 35mm film with and without sound. Everything is transferred to High Definition 1920x1080P ensuring the highest quality digital file for your memories.

2. Advanced Technology for Superior Transfers

At ARS Video, we use state-of-the-art technology to transfer your old video tapes and film reels into high-quality digital formats (1080P). No matter your storage preference – USB drive, SD card, or even Blu-Ray – we ensure that your original media is converted with the utmost precision, preserving the quality of your footage. If you prefer a DVD, we can do that although it will not be High Definition like our other formats. Did we mention that we continue to upgrade our technology? It’s true!

3. Safe and Secure Process

Understanding that your media, especially older formats like VHS tapes and film, can be fragile, our video transfer service is designed to handle your precious memories safely. If you live in Northeast Ohio, feel free to drop the materials off at our office, no appointment necessary. For our customers who cannot visit us in person, you can ship your materials to us by downloading our packing slip. Please be sure your package has tracking. Our team tags each item received to uniquely identify it and track it through our system. Once we’re done converting your precious memories, we’ll securely ship them back to you with the digital version. We also keep a backup copy on site to ensure a worry-free transfer experience.

4. Personalization and Attention to Detail

Beyond just transferring your memories, we offer customization options. We label each file according to the labels provided. We can add appropriate audio to silent film, and we remove blank material or copyrighted material such as TV shows. We review each item to provide an accurate estimate for your approval before we begin. All your material will fit onto a USB flash drive or external hard drive formatted to work on your TV and PC. You can make copies yourself or upload them to a cloud service and share them.

5. Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness

Buying the proper equipment to digitize your old footage can be extremely costly, and the tapes can easily be damaged if the equipment is not professionally maintained, making the entire process disheartening to say the least.

Choosing ARS Video’s services is not just about quality; it’s also a cost-effective and time-efficient solution. Our pricing is based on the actual footage we digitize, meaning you only pay for what you get – no charges for blank tapes or unwanted content. This is especially beneficial when dealing with multiple media formats that you are not able to play.
