    Video Data Service-Customer for Life
    On Dec. 23 I went to Video Data Services on Chestnut St. in Union to get 8 tapes burned on to DVD for a Christmas present for my sister. The owner Ira stayed late that night to ensure I would have them for her for Christmas. And they were fantastic! He really understood how important this was, especially since I waited to the last minute. He seems to be an honest family man, which I liked. He has drawings from his children all over his shop. I would definately go back to him for all my photographic needs!

    Always there for me
    Video Data Services are always there when I need them. And usually that means RUSH. Ira has a can-do attitude and loves to solve difficult video and editing problems. And he always, always solves them.

    For example, recently, I brought him some footage a client of mine had shot on a JVC camera (trying to save money and do it cheap). I couldn’t see the picture on it, just black screen. I could hear the audio, but no video wouldn’t show. Ira investigated it thoroughly and solved it without a peep. It’s nothing for him. He’s very thorough, professional, and both time and cost conscious.

    I will continue to use Ira for every video production I have. I’ve had him on set with my most important clients and he always comes through.

    Video Data Services Quality Super 8mm film Transfer! Ira did a wonderful job transferring my old super 8 mm film to DVD. I had previously used a large chain store’s service and was not happy with the quality of their work. Although I paid more with Video Data Services, it showed why in the finished product. Ira even went the extra mile in providing me with a second version of the film transfer that he tweeked the brightness on, at no extra charge. Thanks for a job well done Ira.

    I have been going Mr. Goodman for various projects for the past 25 years. He has ALWAYS provided a superior service at an excellent price over all media formats. His customer service based attitude always lets you know that your business is appreciated. When looking to transfer old film or video that has sentimental value, I ALWAYS trust Video Data Services to do the best job and to treat my projects with care and respect.

    Need the job done correctly? Go to Video Data Services!

    VDS originally made a transfer to DVD from old tape of my mother and her sister and my grandparents when they were just little ones, I believe it was the late 1940’s…it was put to music and very beautifully done. Made for a great present. And just recently I had transferred 10″ audio reels of my stepfather singing from the 60’s in a recording session that came out magnificent…I can’t say enough good things about VDS! I highly recommend them!

    I would recommend Video Date Services anytime. I had many VHS tapes transferred over to DVD and he did a great job. Service was very quick and the owner was very careful when doing the transfers.

    I was searching for a way to view my old 8mm videos for the past 8 years. Specifically my daughter’s birth since me nor my wife never did see it. My camcorder broke immediately after and I could not find a player anywhere. After years of giving up an effort, I decided to surprise my wife. I searched on line only to find nothing close. One day after riding around union I stumbled across video data services and it was everything I,d been looking for. One of my tapes had even popped and Mr. Goodman repaired it within a few minutes at no cost. He also threw in additional copies saving me lots of money. I rate them 5 out of 5 stars and will be back.

    Video Data services transferred all of our family’s Super 8 film to DVD. The work was fantastic and the service was even better. It was a pleasure to work with Ira.

    He even pulled off a miracle of copying DVD’s in time for a Christmas present even though I gave it to him at the last minute. Thank you Video Data Services!

    I’ve used Video Data Services on three occassions now. Twice for transferring 35mm family film on to DVDs and once for some PhotoShop work. On all occassions, I got more then I could have hoped for. The entire family is EXTREMELY happy with results and we’ll have videos and pictures to enjoy for many generations to come. Two thumbs up!
