About Video Tape Upscaling Services

If your tape is broken or exhibiting strange smells, you also want to contact a pro for video tape repair and upscaling.

Other issues that we can solve include video tape that is not playing at all. In fact, most of the video tape problems you will face can easily be remedied with ARS Video and our technician services.

This includes VHS, VHS-C, Regular 8MM, Hi-8, D8, MicroMV and Betamax, as well as MiniDV, DVCAM, HDV, Betacam SP, Umatic 3/4″, DVC Pro, Betacam SX, MPEG IMS, and Digi Beta transfers.

Specialized Services for Mold and Sticky Shed Syndrome

We can take your videotapes even if they have mold on them and convert home movies to digital files in High Definition for use on your TV, PC and Cloud.

Our services also include resolving sticky shed syndrome.

This strangely named condition for video tapes is the result of old school binders like polyester-urethane (PEU) absorbing moisture from the atmosphere.

These binders form a stickiness that affects the audio and video when playing the tape.

When you play the VHS, the tape may bind up or leave behind a residue inside the tape player.

As a result, both the video tape player and the VHS tape can be damaged if you don’t treat sticky shed syndrome.

To assist you, our technician reviews all tapes personally to ensure the highest attention to detail in video tape upscaling.

In most cases the data can be transferred to a high-definition file or disc upon request.
