Film Conversion Services from ARS Video

With time, analog media like film begins to fade, and the speed with which it fades depends on how it’s being stored. Water and humidity can expedite the degradation process, which is why choosing a digital conversion service to preserve your film is crucial.

The conversion process isn’t overly complicated, but it does require the proper equipment and skillset to do correctly. That’s why relying on professionals who can get you the best transfer possible is paramount. At ARS Video, we have a frame-by-frame scanning system that we use for 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm film. When we convert your film for you, we even include a flash drive that will play on your computer or TV so you can free up some storage space in your home and take your film with you on the go. We also offer film restoration and archival services for museums and historical societies.

To access our team’s professional services, simply bring your materials in or ship them to us. If you prefer to mail them, you can download a packing slip from our site to keep track of the location of your footage. Once the process is over, you can either pick up your film or we can ship it back to you.
