Slides-to-Digital Scanning in Massachusetts. Your photos stay right here. We don’t ship them out.

The only way to preserve your slides is by converting your photos to digital formats.

Digital JPG images do not suffer fading, degradation, rips, tears or mold growth with time. Play it Again Video is an on-site slide scanning service located in Massachusetts.

Why choose a local Slide-Scanning service?

Peace of Mind. Shipping off your precious photos out-of-town, out-of-state, out-of-country has its risks.  Why lose sleep worrying when you can scan your pictures at an on-site lab near your home?  Your photos do not leave our premises until you pick them up.
Quick Turn-Around. Our standard turnaround is one week for up to 100 slides. If you need your digital images sooner, we are often able to accommodate because we scan your slides in-house, no time wasted shipping them back and forth.
Face-to-face Customer Service. Our warm, friendly customer service is here to help you face-to-face. Why get annoyed with long on-hold times on the phone? Talk to us in person.  That’s the benefit of doing business locally.

Once you have converted your slides to digital image files, you can create photobooks, slideshows, music video montage projects, or simply put the photo JPG files on discs to give to friends and family.

The families who value our photo scanning service choose us for these reasons:

  • We are local, in the Greater Boston area, Massachusetts.   All work is done on-site.
  • We scan at a high 2,000 DPI resolution, by hand.  This ensures sharper, higher quality digital images that looks good even when you print them (Many labs charge extra for 2,000 DPI scans, not us).
  • We guarantee our work 100%.  In the rare case that you are unhappy for any reason, we will gladly rescan your photographs at no charge.

We’ve seen too many faded, washed-out, ripped, torn, cracked slides.  If you know you want to preserve your slides, why wait?   The best time to digitize your old slides is ….. Yesterday!

Transferring to Hard Drive


More and more customers are requesting that their films or videos be transferred to an external hard drive. Why? Because video editing has become simpler, video editing software even comes free with Windows or Mac.  Transferring to an external hard drive makes it easy to import your raw video footage into the software so you can trim out the boring parts, add music, video transitions, special effects.

Watching unedited raw footage can be like watching grass grow. Editing allows you to trim scenes, add titles, intersperse photos between video scenes, and even add voice-over narrative. For silent 8mm and 16mm film, adding a music from the era can set the mood and enhance the viewing experience.

When you request a hard drive transfer of your film and videos, remember to tell us if you will be editing your videos on the PC or MAC.  If you are using a PC editing software, we will transfer the videos into .AVI format.  If you will be editing on a MAC, we transfer the videos to .MOV format.  This allows the video files to be imported into the respective video editing software directly.

Transfer to Hard DriveAnother advantage of transferring to a hard drive is that you get higher-resolution files.  Video files that habe been burned on a DVD have been compressed, that’s why you can fit 2 hours on video on a 4.7 gig DVD disk space.  The same 2 hours of video on a hard drive will take up 30 Gig.  Rule of thumb for estimating how much hard drive space you need is:  15 Gig per hour of video.

Our videos to hard drive transfer pricing is a simple $25 per hour per tape, plus a one-time $25 hard drive set-up fee..  For film transfers to hard drive, the hard drive fee is in addition to the film transfer fee.  If your total film footage is 1 hour, the additional fee to transfer to hard drive is $25, plus the one-time $25 hard drive set-up fee.

Don’t hesitate to contact us about your video transfer project to discuss if transferring to hard drive is the right option for you.

“I went to Play It Again Video in July and the staff was fantastic to say the least. They took their time with me explaining the process and my options. I cannot say enough about their courtesy and the way they treat their customers. My order was supposed to take 3 weeks to complete, but was done early and they notified me via e mail. We were able to enjoy the DVD’s with much of the family at a recent vacation and everyone was so happy with the surprise! I highly recommend this service”
