Creative HD, Inc. is a playback and video assist equipment rental company based in Chicago.

We provide equipment and labor for television, movies and commercials.


Kevin Boyd (Founder) started in the film equipment rental business in 1991. We began serving the Chicago film community about this time. In 2012 we changed the name of the company from KPB Digital for Film to Creative HD. This coincided with our significant move into Hi Definition equipment. Creative HD bridges old equipment with new and takes the best part of both film and HD.

Creative HD has a large inventory of Playback and Video Assist equipment. With our fine team of operators, we can support multiple projects at the same time. Our team is currently in Production on Chicago Med Season 4 (Kevin Boyd, Andy Smith, Evan Johnson), Chicago Fire Season 7 (Crossover - Evan Johnson), Chicago PD Season 6 (Crossover - Evan Johnson), Empire Season 5 (Jim Thomson) and Proven Innocent Season 1 (Neil Jimenez). We recently wrapped the HBO Pilot Lovecraft Country (Neil Jimenez), the Netflix film Beats (Tim Armstrong) and additional photography on our 2017 film Widows (Tim Armstrong, Evan Johnson). Which is set to release November of this year.

Team member resumes are available upon request. We are working on an ‘about us’ section. We have been developing talented operators, building new equipment and coordinating multiple projects for coming up on three decades. The rare occasion have we only provided equipment or labor. Over the years, we have worked extensively in Los Angeles and on location in the United States and abroad.

Our office is conveniently located on Grand Avenue in Chicago's West Side, close to downtown and all of Chicago's film studios.
