About The Company

Albany Edit & Video Transfer was established in 2001 and the doors officially opened at 1593 Central Ave in Albany, NY on April 1, 2001. Albany Edit served consumers and professionals by bridging the gap between the video formats and preserving older memories on modern media. This continued for 2 decades and saw the great shift away from analog to digital formats. The walk-in location closed April 15, 2022 and transitioned to Online/Mail order with a 24/7 drop-off location in Valatie, NY. and while a walk-in location no longer exists the focus is still on a local personalized service.

Why clients choose me?

I transfer your project, your way. Unlike other online video conversion companies, we don't do cookie cutter packages with no flexibility. I can combine tapes, do minor editing, repair tapes and other customizations to fit your needs.

I do all the work in house. Nothing is farmed out or sent to another facility for processing.

I fix your tapes and films to get the best run out of them I can. If your videos are moldy or broken other companies just refuse the item and move on. 

People trust me and keep coming back. I've been working professionally in the Audio Video field for more than 25 Years.

Ask a video service question.

Feel free to reach out about the services we offer or maybe we do something not listed.
