Established in 1978, Creative AV began as a foreign standard conversion lab. We change videos recorded in the PAL or SECAM (Europe) system to NTSC (American) system. Since the early days, we have continued to add new capabilities to our lab here in Deerfield, IL.
Don Chapman, Owner
I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University in 1973 and taught English for a number of years before starting Creative AV in 1978. I also studied improvisation with the late Josephine Forsberg’s Player’s Workshop and taught an improv program for middle school aged students at Winnetka’s Music Center of the Northshore. At Player’s Workshop I met my wife Dolores and we were married in 1978. We have three adult children.
