Review from a Satisfied Customer

“Our Library has been working with ARS Video for years. We have had many outdated and obscure
audiovisual formats in our archival collections that contain valuable local history footage that needed to be preserved. ARS has been able to transfer and digitize any video format we have ever given them. The
service time was always a quick turnaround no matter what time of year or how much material we handed over. Gary was great to work with; helpful, knowledgeable and considerate of our specific needs
when assessing any job we needed done. With the continuous necessity to reformat obsolete video formats for modern platforms at a reasonable price, we have been so fortunate to be able to work with
ARS Video and will continue to work with them in the future.”
