At Media Transfer Service we have a keen interest in preserving the past, as a resource and

services. Our goal is to cater to clientele in both the consumer and corporate sectors who
appreciate and want the best quality, while balancing costs to a reasonable level.
Media Transfer Service founder, John Schroth, is a Rochester native and a graduate of the
Rochester Institute of Technology's Audiovisual Production and Communications program. For
nine years, John worked as a Producer and Audiovisual Programmer for a production company
in Cleveland, Ohio. He produced national sales meeting presentations for corporations such as:
BF Goodrich, Nissan, General Electric, British Petroleum, Ernst and Young, NASA and General
Tire. During his tenure, he received numerous regional and national programming awards. In
1990, John returned to Rochester as one of three founders of Screen Seen, Inc., a trivia
entertainment and advertising program which ran at local movie theatres. Over the next eight
years, the company grew to one of the largest in the Northeast U.S. Screen Seen then joint
venture partnered with Australian based Val Morgan Pty Ltd. John remained as Senior Vice
President of their U.S. operation and served on their U.S. Board of Directors.
The start of Media Transfer Service
Retiring from his position at Val Morgan in 2002, John began freelance and consulting work in
his field. While researching local film-to-video transfer companies for his own family movie films,
John realized that there was a void in the local market. He saw the need for a company that
offered a higher quality option than current local businesses could provide and Media Transfer
Service was founded. John took a "no compromise" approach to building his company, insisting
on the best equipment and transfer methods available to suit his client's diverse needs.
Over the next twelve years, Media Transfer Service has expanded several times. 80% of our
business now caters to preservation and digitizing large audiovisual collections for business and
corporations such as Georgetown University, the University of Rochester, Progressive Insurance
Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the nationally renown Memorial Art Gallery. The conversion
capabilities we now offer 12 years after opening, covers a much wider scope but our
fundamental philosophy is the same: corporate or consumer - the same care, dedication, quality
and attention to detail, goes into every job we do.
