Commodore CDTV

The Commodore CDTV was a multimedia platform from Commodore. Technologically, the device was no more than an Amiga 500 variant in a housing that closely resembled that of the then HiFi music installations. Furthermore, the CDTV had a player for CD-ROMs (operating at single speed) and a built-in MIDI card.

Commodore described the product as an "all-in-one home multimedia system" rather than a computer, which is why the brand name "Amiga" was not mentioned on the device. In that respect, the device aimed at the same target group as the Philips CD-i. However, the market for such multimedia systems failed to materialize and both the CDTV and CD-i flopped
