About Video, Film and Slide Transfer

Deciding who you should trust with your precious home movies, slides and photos is a difficult decision.
Video Transfer Boston Below is a checklist that should help you make a good decision. This is what I would look for before I trust my precious videos and film to any company:

1) Do they ship your precious memories out?

Many competitors ship your tapes and slides to cheaper labor outside the U.S. When you do business with an on-site lab, you get:

  • Peace of Mind. Can you sleep at night wondering if your video tapes or 35mm slides & photos will reach its destination in some other part of the planet and make its way back safely to ARLINGTON?
  • Quick Turnaround. Our standard turnaround is 3-5 days. Need it sooner? Talk to us, chances are we can make it happen.
  • Face-to-face Customer Service. If you have questions before or after your order, we are right here in-person to help you.

2) Do they use professional equipment?

The results you get from professional dedicated transfer equipment is significantly different than what you get from hobbyist consumer equipment. In addition, professional lab equipment is routinely conditioned and maintained to produce optimal transfer quality. Do you really want to feed your fragile films or 35mm slides into unconditioned, maybe-even-dusty equipment that will ruin your media? It’s like buying sushi. Go to a popular, bustling restaurant for fresh sushi, not a slow-moving, rarely-frequented joint.

3) How long have they been in business?

Play it Again Video was founded by two brothers, Erik and Gary Schlictmann, seasoned in the film transfer business. We have been transferring film and video for Boston area families and businesses since 1986! We plan to be the last standing video transfer lab, to transfer that last VHS tape or 16mm film reel out there.
