Releases database: Hardware details
Title: Console system (NTSC)
System: CreatiVision
Catalogue n.: ?
Released in: Venezuela
Release year: 1982
 
Manufacturer: Hong Kong VTech
Distributor: Venezuela Unknown
Notes: Obscure version (prototype?) of the Creativision, provided by the Venezuelan contributor, Joaquin Coelho. It's not confirmed that it was specifically manufactured for the Venezuelan market, though.
The PCB is a very old PAL revision with handmade modifications to adapt it to the NTSC standard.
The most noticeable mod is in the TMS9929 PAL/YUV video chip, which has been replaced by a TMS9918 NTSC/composite model with an additional daughterboard to enhance the video signal. The TBA520 (PAL encoder) chip is still present, though disabled.
The power supply works at 110V and it has a typewritten label reading "6 Aug 1982".
It's supposed to be a prototype model made to promote the system in America.
