Northborough – Jeff Ward has been in the “video game” for a long time. As a former technician at La Bonne Vie Camera in Westborough, Ward continued to master the ins and outs of all kinds of film, cameras and video equipment. This passion for recording technology, and the quest for knowledge surrounding the inner workings of recording equipment, started when he was a teenager. Now, even though La Bonne Vie Camera is a memory, Ward has continued to do business from his home in Northborough for the past decade. At Northboro Media Service, he converts older forms of media in all formats, such as camcorder tapes, 8-mm and 16-mm film, and audiotapes into the new digital formats such as DVDs and CDs.
