After researching companies to transfer about 6000 ft of old 8mm/super 8 film, I felt comfortable choosing A.R.S. based on their reviews. The service felt personal and they exceeded expectations. Even the music they selected was as if they personally knew my family. Couldn’t be more pleased and the service is truly outstanding.

I researched a number of places to have my VHS tapes and super 8 and regular 8 reels digitized. I found ARS video with excellent ratings and decided to give them a try. I agree. Now I know why they get outstanding ratings. They did a superb job at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend them if you want friendly, trustworthy, professional, competent people handling your precious videos!

I just wanted to let you know how absolutely thrilled I am with what you were able to digitize from some very old 8mm film. The one that was a bit grainy must have been the first time my cousin had used the camera – bad photography. The other two were very clear and meant a LOT to me. And I didn’t realize how much the music was going to enhance the films. You matched the music perfectly. Now I’m going to dig through some old VHS tapes to have you digitize that. Thank you is quite isn’t enough to express my appreciation.

I recently used your services to convert my family’s 8mm films into DVD. I would like to thank the person and persons involved in processing them. The music that was chosen blended well with our home movies and was most fitting. I was delighted and wanted to take this opportunity to tell you so. The results surpassed any expectations that I had. Thank you once again for making our family movies most memorable.
I had a 30-year-old VHS tape with mold inside that I expected to pay hundreds of dollars to have recovered and... digitized. ARS quickly recovered and converted to a video sent via Dropbox and the quality was much better than expected and they charged me less than $40!! I will definitely be using them again and I recommend you do too!! What a great service and very kind employees!read more
Thank You Lorin Alvarez for the wonderful job you did for us in converting almost 12,000 feet of 8mm film to about 16... hours of memories from the 50s to the 70s. You brought 30 years of our adventures to life with the the music and sounds that you added to our film. We did quite a bit of research before we pick ARS and it was fortunate choice. The music you added to film of our three years in Spain with our 5 children brought out the joy we had of those years. Thank you much Lorin.Ford Lee - San Franciscoread more
All we can say that working with the ARS team on our digitizing project was an absolutely positive experience every... step of the way. Always kept us informed every step of the way and went above and beyond to produce and exceptable product. Thanks for all your efforts.read more
ARS Video is by far the best company I have ever worked with when it comes to preserving family memories. I recently... acquired all of the video footage from my husbands family. There were many different types of footage to be converted. ARS made it seamless! They spent the extra time to put them all in chronological order and labeled each file. We spent Mother's Day watching as a family. Thank you for taking the time to help us preserve our memories!read more
A Professional Nice People. They bring to life 30 year old memories and made a few days of joy for all family. This was... never about cost, which is not expensive at all. I'm planning to get them more VHS to be digitized.read more
The prices were good the video quality from recording the VHC TO DIGITAL was good. The flash sent didn’t work on some... devices but ARC sent another flash which did work just fine. Communication with them was excellent they answered every email the same day.Highly recommend them.read more
I couldn't be happier with this company. I sent 28 8mm reels with limited information written on the outside of each... box. They not only added my titles (a little bit extra) - but customized the music based on the subject matter. I was able to get DVD,s and flash drives for the whole family. No more movies under the stairs - now we can enjoy watching them anytime we want. If you want personalized service when converting your movies / VHS - this is your company!read more
Great local video transfer company. They did a great job transferring old 35mm movies into a dvd and flash drive so... that all of my husband’s brothers and sister can view their priceless memories of times gone by and treasured people who have passed on.Previously we have used internet based video companies. I don’t think you can compare those to having a local, responsible company. We would not hesitate to either use them for future projects and to highly recommend them to others. If you are looking for a great video transfer company look no further than ARS video and you will be saying the same things tooread more
The folks at ARS Video were very helpful. They explained what their services included and approximately how long the... process would take. Once it was completed the gentleman reviewed how to use the drive and checked out some of the videos with me. There was one he was not completely satisfied with. He said he would work on it some more to refine it and there would be no charge. My wife and I were very pleased with the final version and ordered 3 more copies for our children. I highly recommend this company.read more
This place is great. I thought I lost my wedding photos, my dad's 80th birthday photos and a vacation adventure with... awesome photos on an SD card that went bad. I was devastated and didn't know what to do. They worked diligently to recover them and after talking to them I felt comfortable leaving the SD card with them to work on. They are professional and kind people, who went above and beyond to get my photos back. Great service and the right price!!!read more
The expertise, creativity, and quality of the work done at ARS Video is outstanding. I recently received a standing... ovation after presenting the 3 work videos Lauren and Gary helped me to create! They made me look like a superstar to my colleagues and our company's Senior Leadership and. Ownership. Outstanding Customer Service and follow up, as well!! Lauren and Gary made sure I was completely satisfied and even coached me on some PowerPoint tips and techniques. Thanks for making me look so great!!!read more
No surprise that ARS Video has a 5 star rating with almost 50 reviews. Their customer service from my first phone call... to finalizing my pickup order was seamless and comfortable. ARS converted almost 100 hours of video from my camcorder tapes to an external drive. With the videos being priceless, I felt comfortable coming to them and leaving it in their hands. Would recommend and will use again.read more
Thank you so much for this great service! The owner and staff members are professional and take care of your precious... memories. The process is very easy, and everything is communicated clearly. The hard drive is a breeze to use and beats the VHS tapes. Affordable prices, highly recommend!read more
I couldn't be happier with my choice to have ARS Video handle the digitizing of my family VHS recordings, slides, 8mm... tapes, mini cassette audio, etc. So many precious memories now in a current format. As soon as I've organized my photos, I will gladly be making the 1 hour trek to Tallmadge to have them professionally scanned. Thank you ARS!read more
Good & reliable. I had a whole box full of mini cassettes that ARS put on flash drive for me and returned my originals... just the way they were. Thank you so much for helping me preserve & share my memories in a more modern and convenient way.read more
They were very professional, helpful , and courteous! They pulled a rabbit out of a hat for me on a flip phone video... that had no sound and brought it back to life. I can't express how grateful I am and will be a customer for life with any needs in this field!read more
I highly recommend using ARS Video. They are a professional family business who is very accommodating. We dropped our... tapes off a few weeks before Christmas with hopes that they would be converted by Christmas. ARS worked diligently to finish them so we could share precious memories of our children being born, learning to walk, talk, etc. Our now-grown children loved watching them as a family over the Christmas holiday. The quality and organization of the tapes and new electronic files were impeccable.read more
Quality of the finished product along with the excellent customer service exceeded my expectations. Truly went above... and beyond to preserve precious memories, especially of the loved ones who have passed.read more
ARS is simply amazing! Super accommodating and have such a friendly team willing to go above and beyond! Heather... specifically was able to help our family with a difficult loss of our families dog. I was able to find an old mini-dvd the same day I was picking up an order, I asked if I could swing bye and see if they could convert for us within hours before leaving before a family trip. This was a day after we lost our sweet Roxy. She didn’t hesitate and was so kind and compassionate. We will be able to commentate and enjoy our Roxy puppy DVD’s with our children on our trip and forever lasting memories! THANKS HEATHER AND ARS Team! You all Rock!read more
We use Gary to videotape along streets before we do construction and he is always on time, always completes the jobs by... the deadline and is a pleasure to work with. He has saved our company a lot of money with his videos. Great guy and great company!read more
Thanks for scanning my old photos to digital so that I could import them into a video. The video turned out great and... the time you saved me in scanning all the photos was great help. You followed all of my wishes in putting the photos into separate folders. Thank you for your help. I have no reservation in recommending you to my family and friends.read more
These people are fabulous! They cleaned mold from videos which had been stored in Bombay for years. They ran through... the videos and did not copy the TV shows which were on a few of the cassettes. We cannot say enough in praise. Their prices are reasonable and they are very knowledgeable.read more
My family film was handled with great care and the video was beautifully put together. Everyone in my family has so... enjoyed it. I will be back again to have more memories transferred into current viewing format. Thank youread more
