10/13/2017 Home Movie Transfer

Home video was terrific! I showed up on a Saturday (they were open), got a great price on our CD conversions and the work was done in less than a week. Great job!

10/11/2017 Audio Tape Transfer

I had a great experience working with Joe on transferring some cassette tapes, containing live recordings of a band I was in during the 70's, to CD. I even asked a favor to get the CD's done a day early so that I could get them in the mail in time for a birthday present. Joe did so without hesitation. I will use Joe for similar projects in the future.

Joe did exactly what I needed - at a very reasonable price and within a short period of time. He was helpful in discussing the project with me and determining the best way to organize the video material on DVD's. It was wonderful to get some precious memories preserved. I highly recommend him and his service.

Joe transferred 17 rolls of 8mm dating back to 1955-1957. Great job! . I thought most of it might be disintegrated by now, but Joe's careful work not only preserved the memories, but really made them come to life. And, since I'm so far away, Joe simply sent the digital file through Dropbox, so very easy. Thanks again!

Superior work and with incredible attention to detail. The staff is professional, courteous, and easy to work with. They are truly patient with my lack of technical expertise and have a commendable ability to work quickly with unfamiliar subject matter, whether for a serious or creative project. I look forward to working with them on future projects.

I used Home Video Studio to have my daughter's wedding transferred from a memory card to DVD format. Joe was extremely friendly and professional. The finished product was excellent. The video is clear, colors great and the volume of the music and speaking parts are perfect. The turn around time and price terrific. I would highly recommend Home Video Studio and I would use them again too!

08/11/2016 Video to DVD

I found your company, Home Video Studio, via the Internet so in effect when I called you it was a consumer's "cold call". And how lucky I was. I needed a video transfer quickly and as it turned out even more quickly than I had originally told you. You could not have been nicer, clearer, or more responsive. If my experience is typical, your clients are fortunate to have discovered Home Video Studio - Columbia.

- Roger R from Stevensville

08/11/2016 Home Movie Transfer

For years my mother had wanted to turn her wedding VHS into a DVD. She had tried a local CVS that lost her VHS for 6 months at which point they found it buried on the manager's desk. After they found it she refused to trust anyone with it again. For her 25th anniversary I research heavily to find a local company that could transfer it at their location and be trustworthy with such a precious home video. Home Video Studio was perfect. Just down the street from my work, I dropped it off and picked it up two days later. I couldn't have been happier with how seriously Joe took my concerns about it getting lost again. Two days and he created a beautiful DVD that my parents will treasure forever. It was the perfect surprise. Thanks so much Joe!

- Amanda from Pasadena

07/27/2016 35mm slide transfer

I was glad that I found Home Video Studio on the 'net. Many hours of research for a reputable service did not go wasted. The fact that it was local was a plus. I wasn't keen on shipping my slides to who-knows-where. After discussing options with Joe, I felt really comfortable with entrusting his office with my slides. The price was about what I expected considering the locality and timeframe. Joe offered all the options, helping guide me through various processes. I took his valuable advice. The results were fantastic. It is very convenient and enjoyable to view the transfers on DVD. The quality is excellent. I'm a very pleased customer and recommend HVS to anyone contemplating any type of video service. Thank you, Anna, for contacting me afterwards to inform me of the upcoming discount on future services and checking on my satisfaction with the project. This is the best service Fast, reliable, high quality, and professionally done. It's a pleasure doing business with HVS.

- Mike from Sykesville

Joe transferred my old Beta tape to DVD, I asked when it would be ready and he said on Thursday and I picked it up and I am happy. His prices are reasonable and he took my credit card

02/25/2016 Duplications

When I was looking for a company to duplicate several CDs of family history, I found Home Video Studio of Columbia, Maryland. They were very helpful by advising me about labelling. They created the CDs and also imbedded the label to be visible on the screen when playing. Home Video Studio made the various interview copies and had them organized by recipient. I liked service so much that I have asked them to do several additional conversion jobs. They have been very helpful and timely each time we have worked with them.

- Sarah G from Marriottsville

01/15/2016 DVA - Digital Video Archive

This is a fantastic family run business. My husband and I wanted to have some VHS tapes transferred for Christmas and we couldn't have been more pleased. The Yuricks are great and we came away with the new cloud service that allows our family to see the tapes. We have many more tapes to add to the collection and will be seeing them soon.

- Michele from Laurel

01/05/2016 Video to DVD

I found 4 old Hi8 and MiniDV tapes that, for some reason, we never converted to DVD on our own when we actually owned a traditional video camera and could record from the camera to DVD via our DVD player. I found Joe and Anna on-line and decided to try them out. It turned out great - they are professional, courteous and very hospitable (their home is their office). Their work was top caliber. The quality of the finished DVDs, to include packaging an labeling, was something you'd expect to find on a mass-market issue in the store. We will definitely return to them if we have a similar need in the future.

- Mark from Ellicott City

12/29/2015 Video to DVD

I just wanted to let you know that I got home and popped in the first DVD just to make sure it was all set for Christmas morning. My 14 year old son was with me and he was immediately smiling and laughing and screaming for his 15 year old sister to come and watch with us. They were both cracking up and wanted to watch more, but I told them we needed to keep it a secret from their dad until Christmas. They both agreed that this would be a great gift and that my husband will love it! Just wanted you to know that the early votes are amazing!! Thank you for all of your efforts. I haven't been this excited by a gift in a long time!! Update: The DVDs were a hit-not only with my husband and the kids, but with the extended family! I can't tell you how invaluable your service is. We haven't seen these videos in years, and the kids never have, so giving the ability to watch memories has been a real gift. You guys were both great and took the time to explain everything. I'm already know I have a few more things for you to transfer and I think my in laws will likely be coming to you for the same! Thanks for helping to make this a Christmas to remember! (Oh, and the absence of the film did nothing to take away from the gift! I put a note in saying they are coming and we now look forward to even more fun!)

12/11/2015 Home Movie Transfer

I have been using Home Video Studio for several years to edit and process the many family videos that I have and have been very pleased with the work that they do. My family videos cover a 40 year period with video technology going back to the time of reels and then progressing to Beta and on to DVD. They handle all of these with excellent results, so the 40 year old reel video comes back as a high quality DVD video. I highly recommend them! Owen Flynn

- Owen Flynn from Columbia, MD

11/17/2015 Video to DVD

It is a personal thing to hand over your home movies full of memories and sentimental value and trust a stranger to take good care of them. When we decided to digitize my childhood VHS tapes we weren't sure if they would break due to old age and feared we might loose our special moments. That is why I am so pleased that I trusted Joe and Anna with our first VHS tape. Anna answered all my questions and was very conscientious and understanding throughout the whole process. She explained the procedure for how they can repair tapes should one break during conversion. The tape was converted to DVD quickly and without incident and I enjoyed watching it with my family. They did such a great job that I just brought in another 40+ VHS tapes to be converted!

- Catherine R. from Columbia

11/11/2015 Audio Tape Transfer

Joe and Anna, the old cassette tapes I had converted to CD turned out very nice and I'm enjoying listening to them. I hadn't listened to some of them in over 15 years, it really brought back a lot of memories. I had some old songs on them that I had completely forgotten I had until listening to the CD's. If you have any old tapes and would like to have them put on CD I highly recommend Home Video Studio, they do excellent work. I also have several old VHS tapes I'm probably going to bring to them so I can have those put on DVD. David F.

11/03/2015 35mm slide transfer

Finally I did it!! All my ancient slides are out of their many storage boxes and on a flash drive! Okay, actually, Home Video Studio did part was bagging the slides. I wanted them on a flash drive so I can organize them with my photos. Anna consulted with me, did just what we agreed on and the "lost" pictures are able to be enjoyed once again at last. Thank you Anna & Joe for the care you gave my precious memories. Marilyn

10/30/2015 Video to DVD

Like your other reviews, I was very happy with the quality of the DVDs you created for me and my family. You were able to convert over 80 hours of old VHS and 8mm tapes to DVD’s that went back to 1982 without damaging any of them. Also, the way the DVDs fit in the “Family Memories” binder is perfect. I would be pleased to refer any of my acquaintances to you for your services. Richard A.

- Richard A. from Dayton, MD

10/12/2015 Home Movie Transfer

My church recently found two reels of 8mm film (approximately 700ft.) and I contacted Anna to see if Home Video Studio could transfer these reels to DVD. Not only did the film receive the “white glove” treatment, so did I. Thank you for the great treatment and I recommend their services whole-heartedly. Neil Danzig, CCNA, VSP

Joe & Anna did an excellent job of transferring a 50 year old reel-to-reel tape to CD's with tracks every 5 minutes to permit convenient review of the historic 50th anniversary of my grandparents. The resultant quality is very good and no damage was done to a very fragile original. They were very accommodating to schedule and delivery. Jim Zaloudek

I contacted Joe and Anna about transferring the music from an old cassette to a CD. I needed it in less than a week for a birthday present for my best friend.

They not only do very good work, and deliver as promised, but they are also very nice people! Thanks Joe and Anna.

08/19/2015 Home Movie Transfer

My wife and I have hundreds of feet of Super 8 movie film that contain many cherished memories of us when we were young parents and our children were small. One of the movies was actually taken on our wedding day in Argentina. Home Video Studios did an excellent job of converting more than 1000 feet of film to DVD, adding appropriate music and titles. More recently we took a couple of hundred 35 mm slides for transfer to DVD. We can now easily show these images of many years ago to our children and grandchildren. Joe and Anna Yurick are very knowledgeable and take the time to explain all of our options. They are also very welcoming and easy to do business with. We felt very strongly about the need to preserve the record of our lives, and Joe and Anna were instrumental in doing just that. Best Regards, Gene

07/15/2015 Photo Videos

I lost my mom a few months back and wanted to have a photo of my parents restored. I only had a little tiny photo that was 57 years old. I spoke with Anna and asked if they could do this fast (5 days) so I could give this to my dad for fathers day. Long story short. They did it and WOW... what a GREAT job. My dad cried when I gave it to him. Thank you Joe & Anna for the wonderful thing you did for me and my dad. Now I can share my photo with the rest of my family. And....I have a new friend, Anna.....

HVS brought a 40 year old high school football game tape back to life, and with it wonderful memories of friends & teammates from a bygone time. The quality of the reproduction and customer service is excellent. The new DVD was completed ahead of schedule and I was able to preview its contents upon pick-up. I have several other tapes that need reproduction and will be returning to HVS. I will highly recommend them to others."

Very Pleased! Sums it up. Joe and Anna took my 1995 old, dusty wedding VHS and a few Hi-8 tapes of my children and converted each to a nicely packaged, titled and labled DVD. Now, they are very mobile and easily stored. Best of all, the quality is excellent. In fact, it seems better. They also converted them fairly quickly. Thank You Joe and Anna. Great Job! As Arnold says in the Terminator, "I'll Be Back!"

01/13/2015 Video Services

I just wanted to say thanks and the cd turned out great. I think the quality is better than the old cassette tape it was made from ever was. I had a cd created with an old cassette tape I had recorded when I was 7 or 8 years old, which was almost 40 years ago! I figured I better have something permanent made before something happened to the tape. It brought back a ton of memories, I forgot how awful I used to be at playing the violin! There is even a bit of my Mom who passed away just over a year ago also trying to play the violin. My Dad's voice is on there too, luckily I still have him. Well thanks again, I'm thinking about having a few more tapes put on cd, I'll be sure to get back in touch.

- David F. from Chestnut Hill Cove, MD

Very pleased working with Joe & Anna. The fact that I could deliver my VHS_C tapes, digital Tapes, and Mini DVDs and discuss my needs in person was comforting to me.

Dear Joe and Anna. Janice and I just had to let you know how wonderful it was to watch the DVD of our kids growing up.. Some of the super 8 movies were as old ad 45 years and the quality was much better than when they were new. The best part was to get an email today from our son (now 45 years old) telling us how excited he, our daughter-in-law and our three grandsons were watching the video. Thanks for helping us bring our past into the present and future! Warren M.

I wanted to send a heartfelt thanks for the job you recently completed for me. My mother had a cassette tape from the old answering machines with her mother's (my grandmother's) voice on it - my grandmother passed in 1990, so it was a big deal to my mom. I came to Home Video Studio Joe and Anna was so helpful and respectful of the cassette tape; keeping it safe and completed the conversion in the time stated. It was amazing to watch my mom's face when she was able to hear her mother's voice! Thank you so much again-you have made her Mother's Day a remarkable one this year! -So Thankful

- LaTonya Love from Columbia, MD

05/29/2014 Video to DVD

I just wanted to say Thank You for everything! I came to Home Video Studio with my mother's wedding anniversary VHS tape; I wanted it converted to DVD so that my mom and dad could watch it for their anniversary. She said that she was planning on finding someone to convert it, but they got married in 1997 and she still never got around to it! They loved it so much! It was a blast to watch and more impressive was that it took no time at all for Home Video Studio to complete! You have made a happy (and impressed!!) family! Thank you so much and I will definitely be back in the future! -LaTonya L. Columbia, MD

(about 50 originals plus 150 copies) They did an incredible --high quality job, that was reasonably priced, on time and with a great smile and attitude throughout. I'm so happy I found them online at Home Video Studio in Columbia, Maryland--near our home in Silver Spring, Maryland.

I have been working with Anna and Joe of Home Video Studio in Columbia for the last four or so months transferring VCR tapes to DVDs. Most of the tapes involve family history, but two of them are tapes that were related to my scientific career and were professionally done. Some of the tapes were so old that they were difficult to play. Joe was diligent in successfully working with these tapes to get them to play, so that they could be transferred. That was no easy matter and required considerable professional knowledge. I am pleased to report that the tapes have now been transferred to DVDs. The quality is in fact better than or equal to the original VCR tapes. Throughout this process both Anna and Joe have maintained a pleasant and positive attitude, and I have enjoyed working with them. I can recommend their services without reservation.

Anna and Joe are absolutely fabulous!! Very professional, down to earth and great to work with. I had all of my daughter's VHS home movies transferred to DVD and the work is wonderful! I also especially like their gorgeous dog Sydney, she was a joy to see in their home office. Support your community and small businesses, if you need anything along the lines of what HVS offers, these are your people to do it folks! Thank you so much!! Kiss to Sydney, I miss her already.

Joe & Anna, I just finished reviewing the DVD presentation you prepared for us using my 8 millimeter home movies and slides. The aforementioned material (movies and slides) range between 32 and 50 years old, and were shot between 1963 and 1981. What can I say? .... Where should I begin? By taking our project to "Home Video Studio" my expectations for a professional, and quality result, was quite high. Thank you for an absolutely fantastic, and outstanding presentation. "You not only met, but also far exceeded my expectations." The musical accompaniment you selected is spot on. Great selections! Wonderful choices! As you recall, the finished product consists of two DVD's made from my old 8 millimeter home movies, as well as a third DVD which contains a beautiful slide show presentation of my slides, and a fourth "Data Disk" DVD on which you downloaded copies of all of my slides. In our family room we have a large 55" LCD, HD television, surround sound speakers, and a Blue ray player on which I viewed the presentation. The quality of the video and audio is fantastic. While viewing the presentations, I had a constant smile on my face, and yet there were times it moved me to tears. Your "magic", that's what I call it, brought me back in time to relive special moments.. You have truly given my family and me the gift of a lifetime: the ability to look back in time and relive memories, revisit places, and once again see loved ones from our past. Thanks is not a big enough word for what you had done for us.

Thanks so much for the work that you did on the audio recording of our wedding. My wife Beth absolutely loved it! She cried through the whole thing! I surprised her, by telling her I had a presentation of our wedding pictures. Then, at about the 3rd picture, the audio started and her eyes got huge! She asked, "Is that our wedding?" She couldn't believe that she was listening to our wedding! It was the first time she'd heard it. She was blown away! Thanks for getting it all done for me so quickly. It made for a very special 40th anniversary for us. It could not have gone any better!!I Sincerely,

I am totally amazed at the quality of the transfers. The movies are much better than when I last saw them with a movie projector on a movie screen over 30 years ago. I don’t know how you did it, but my old films are better now than when I took them. I would never have thought that 8mm movies could be made to look this good. Thank you so much.

Joe and Anna-Thank you for the excellent job that you did in converting my cousins wedding DVD to the PAL format. The first conversion you did for me was very well received and I can't wait to see the reaction from my cousins on this latest conversion. And since the DVDs will be travelling over 6,000 miles from Baltimore, you can now consider your business as being international :) Thanks again and I will certainly use your services for future projects.

Joe and Anna are the best! I had sent them professionally made 2" video tape reels I was sure no one would be able to transfer, but they were able to get them done for me fast, and the quality was spectacular. I had them transferred for one of my best friends' 78th birthday and my friend told me, after watching the DVD Joe and Anna made of the tapes, it was the best birthday he ever had. I look forward to doing much more business with Joe and Anna.

For my mother's 60th birthday, I decided to get her 8mm film transferred to DVD so I enlisted the help of Joe and Anna Yurick. Time was of the essence and with 15 reels of film, Joe and Anna were very understanding and accommodating of my requests for the transfer and completed the job earlier than the deadline. When viewing the new dvd of memories from 1975 - 1984, my family and I were reunited with memories that hadn't been viewed for 20 years. In addition, it was a life changing event for me personally. I sobbed tears of joy as I watched movies of the first three years of my life, before my brother was born, back when I had mom and dad all to myself. This video transfer was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I couldn't have chosen a better duo to care for these precious memories than Joe and Anna Yurick!

Joe and Anna did a fantastic job transferring my vhs tapes over to dvd's. I had over 70 tapes to be converted and they did it in a timely manner with great quality. Some of the tapes had a low quality but when converted over to dvd Joe and Anna improved the quality for a much better viewing. Dealing with Joe and Anna is like dealing with family. You can tell they care about your video as if it were their own. I would gladly recommend their services for your video transfer needs. Thank you both for extended our video memories.

Joe and Anna: My family is so glad and so pleased to have found your service. The 8mm Sony camera that took these movies over 20 years ago is long gone and no one had seen these images or heard these voices in decades. The superb quality of your work has brought years of our family life back to reality. It is both thrilling and heartbreaking at the same time to see and hear loved ones who we passed away so many years ago. I heartily recommend your video services and plan on using you more in the future. MUCHAS!!!! Best, Robert Register

Anna and Jo were quick to reply to my online inquiry and very happy to answer all my questions. They are friendly people who want to make sure that all of their clients are happy and pleased with the work they do. I was impressed with how promptly my order was completed and with what care they took in making sure my VHS tape was in good shape when they handed it back to me. I would suggest anyone in the Columbia area go to Anna and Joe before considering Costco or any other big company that is in this field as well. Its just better to have a smile and handshake from someone local!

They provided wonderful customer service at an amazing price. I had received quotes from other places and you cannot beat Home Video's prices - very reasonable. They kept me informed about the status of my order at all times. When I received my DVD's, they were all labeled and presented very professionally and the quality of their work is amazing.

Mr. & Ms. Yurick make the transfer of movies a breeze. For the services provided its worth the very reasonable prices, considering some home movies are priceless and tapes can be damaged in storage.

I plan to bring the rest if my memories there for the safe transfer of my media.

I wanted to convert a 1960 8 mm home movie to a DVD as a surprise Christmas present for my husband. The old home movie had been stored away for safe keeping but since we did not own a projector, the film could not be watched. I took the 300 ft reel to Joe and Anna and explained that this movie was very important expecially to my husband. I must admit I was extremely nervous about turning over such a sentimentatl piece of our family history. Both Joe and Anna understood my concern and handled the reel with delicacy and respect. They put my worries at ease and I knew that the movie would be treated as if it were their own. On Christmas morning, this DVD was the last present opened., As we started to play it, everyone in the room was in tears and memories flooded back. It was the best gift ever! Thanks to Joe and Anna for doing such a great job and making me know that I made the best choice in selecting their service!

I came to Anna and Joe with my great-grandparents' and grandparents' 16mm reels from the 1930s and 40s, to have them converted to digital files as a present for my parents -- and we were all thrilled with the results. Each of the files looked crisp, even when viewed on our 55-inch TV. After putting the files on our computers, we quickly uploaded them to YouTube and shared them with family members across the country, even reconnecting with some who we hadn't spoken to in decades. Anna and Joe were both 100% devoted to customer satisfaction, and were completely up-front regarding every cost-saving opportunities for a variety of conversion options. We give them our highest recommendation!

DVDs have been the state-of-the-art for more than ten years in the video and home movie transfer industry. In fact, Home Video Studio still transfers video to DVDs for our customers who request that service.

But there's a new kid in town - The DVA - the Home Video Studio - Video in the Cloud. DVA is the latest technology and it is fast becoming the media of choice. These days we most often transfer everyone's old VHS, BetaMAX, 8mm and Mini DV tapes to DVAs rather than DVDs.
