This past Valentine’s Day served as our yearly reminder of how important it is to cherish each moment and forge lasting memories with our loved ones. Showing your partner or family members that you care -whether it be through acts of service or gift-giving – is a big part of the holiday, and with ARS Video’s video transfer services, you can give your loved ones the gift of their favorite memories preserved for years to come.

Why Convert to a Digital Format

Capturing your favorite memories on videotape is always an exciting feeling. When nostalgia hits, there’s nothing quite like pulling home movies off the shelf and reliving an unforgettable moment.

Unfortunately, analog media formats like VHS tapes are not immune to the wear and tear of time. Constantly replaying your favorite memories causes remanence decay; a phenomenon where the magnetic particle in the tape loses its charge. This leads to discoloration, blacked-out scenes, and eventually, complete loss of the original footage.

Memories are irreplaceable, and tapes aren’t the only things that degrade with time. The hippocampus, the portion of the brain that deals with memory, deteriorates as we age as well, making those recorded videos even more precious!

The Perfect Gift for Any Occasion

With professional video transfer services at ARS Video, you’ll never have to fret about losing those captured moments. Converting your VHS tape collection to a digital format ensures that you and your loved ones and even descendants can watch that wedding ceremony, 50th-anniversary party, winning touchdown, surprise event, or child’s first steps on repeat without having to worry about harming the footage itself.

Giving the gift of digitized memories is perfect for any occasion, including:

  • Holidays like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s and Father’s Days, Christmas
  • Birthdays
  • Weddings
  • Anniversaries
  • Graduations and other special events

and the list goes on!

How Our Digitization Process Works

Upon receiving your tapes, our experts carefully review each one to assess the amount of recorded content and remove any televised content. Should we discover any damage or mold, we’ll communicate what’s needed for repair. We offer discounts when applicable and provide a detailed estimate for your approval before proceeding.

Video Transfer Services from ARS VideoOur experts will convert each tape into a High Definition (1920 x 1080P) MP4 file, which is then stored securely on our system. After conversion, we transfer the files to a USB Flash Drive compatible with both TVs and computers. We’ll send you an invoice and return your original media tapes along with their new digital versions. Additional copies are available for the price of the Flash Drive, and we keep a backup of your files should you need extra copies in the future.

We understand the apprehension in mailing irreplaceable memories. However, we’re proud to say that we’ve never lost a package that was sent with tracking. When you send your tapes to us, please remember to include your contact details. We make it a point to reach out to you as soon as your media arrives at our facility, ensuring you’re informed of its safe delivery.

For those located in Northeast Ohio, feel free to drop off your VHS tapes in person. It’s a great opportunity for us to meet you and demonstrate our process for converting tapes and film to digital format!
