In a fast-paced world where moments come and go in an instant, there’s something extraordinary about the timeless charm of home movies. These treasured recordings capture the laughter, tears, and milestones that shape our lives, preserving memories too precious to let fade away. That’s why seeking out video transfer services for your tapes and old film sooner rather than later is so important.
At ARS Video, we offer a number of comprehensive video transfer services that set us apart from other video conversion companies in the industry:
Video Tape Transfer Services
When it comes to video tapes, ARS Video takes great care to ensure the highest quality conversion possible. Before beginning the transfer process, our dedicated team thoroughly reviews each tape. We carefully remove TV shows and any content that customers do not wish to have digitized, demonstrating our commitment to respecting copyright laws. Additionally, we determine the total hours of family footage across all tapes, allowing us to offer personalized quantity discounts.
To enhance the viewing experience, we upscale the video resolution from 640 x 480 Standard Definition to High Definition 1920 x 1080 MP4 files. Each videotape is converted into a separate MP4 file, ensuring easy navigation and organization of your digitized memories. We also offer tape repair services to address any damage and mold cleaning to restore tapes affected by mold growth. Our technicians closely monitor the transfer process, ensuring optimal quality and attention to detail.
USB Flash Drive or Terabyte External Hard Drive
A USB Flash Drive or Terabyte External Hard Drive with your newly converted videos is included with every transfer at ARS. This means you can easily store and access your digitalized home movies on a portable device. Whether you prefer to share the memories with family and friends or safeguard them for future generations, our all-inclusive service ensures a secure and convenient storage solution.
Backup Copies and Additional Services
Customer satisfaction and peace of mind are our top priorities. To ensure the safety of your digitized memories, we keep backup copies of all the converted files. If you ever require additional copies, we’ve got you covered.
Moreover, we offer additional services to cater to your specific needs. For those looking to enhance their footage, we provide professional editing, color correction, and audio correction services. Our skilled editors can transform your raw footage into a visually captivating masterpiece, optimizing colors, correcting imperfections, and refining audio quality for a truly immersive experience.
Film Transfer Services
In addition to video tapes, ARS Video specializes in transferring film formats, including Regular 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, and 35mm. Our meticulous frame-by-frame scanning technique ensures every frame is captured without relying on sprocket holes. This approach guarantees exceptional image quality and a faithful representation of your original film.
Our editors make color corrections and speed adjustments to perfect the final product, resulting in high-definition MP4 files. If your film contains audio, we run it through a second time to synchronize it with the video. In cases where audio is absent, we offer the option to add appropriate music, such as holiday tunes for festive scenes.
For archival customers seeking the highest quality preservation, we provide frame-by-frame scans, AVI files, and color-corrected MP4 user access files in high definition or even 2K and soon 4K resolution. For everyday consumers, we offer the convenience of a USB Flash Drive containing all the MP4 files.
