FROM STAFF REPORTS
September 3, 2013
In case you haven’t noticed, video is everywhere. From digital video displays in supermarket aisles to Facebook postings—from smart phones and webpage videos to the latest viral sensation on YouTube—video is the king of media in our age.
Sabe Ellis, of Madison, and graduated from Scott High School in 1969, knows this well and, as a Home Video Studio (HVS) owner in Charleston, he stands ready to help individuals and businesses with all their video needs.
Ellis specializes in 27 separate areas of video, including transferring current media to DVD and other digital formats. Media such as smart phone video and photos, photo and video keepsakes, home movie films and videotapes can be converted. Ellis also offers editing for sports and music scholarship videos.
Ellis recently attended HVS’s Advanced Training in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“I make it my business to keep up with the changes, improvements and technology that’s available and bring that knowledge back to West Virginia,” says Ellis.
One of the most recent high demands is transferring photos, videos and film to DVD or other digital format. As baby boomers reach the time of cleaning out their homes, they are finding themselves at a loss of what to do with all the family photos, videos and film.
Ellis explains that having all of your films, videos and photos transferred to DVDs is a smart decision. The Chubb Group of Insurance Companies recently asked homeowners and renters, “What would you save if a wild fire forced the evacuation of your home?” Out of the responses, 43 percent said they would grab the photo family albums. Ellis says it is much easier to grab a handful of DVDs or have an inexpensive copy stored off site than trying to grab 10 photo albums.
As businesses face the increased price of square foot space and technology advancements, they are finding the need to become more efficient with storage is vital. Additionally, they see the best use of time and resources is to have current and historic files and data on the most up-to-date storage media. HVS just completed a large project to convert a room full of hundreds of training videos to one small hard drive for a local West Virginia business.
HVS is conveniently located at 1041 Bridge Road in Charleston, and Ellis welcomes everyone into his studio to learn more about all the products offered.
“I have a lot of customers from the Charleston area,” says Ellis, “but I get calls from all over the state .”
“I love this work,” says Ellis. “The best part is taking what I’ve learned and putting it into practice. With video so prevalent in our world I want my customers to be able to trust me as their one source for video services, whether it’s from beginning to end of their project, or if they just need a little help somewhere in between.”
