CD32-Allianz introduces CDTV-registration
13 years after the CDTV/CD-1000's (Commodore Dynamic Total Vision)
market launch, this Amiga computer still stands the test of time. Back
then Commodore was far ahead of its time with the idea behind the CDTV,
which is something we can benefit from even today in the year 2004, as
the CDTV is used in many homes as a CD-player next to a DVD-player or
In case playing back AudioCDs isn't enough for you, the CDTV can be
expanded with the MAS-Player Pro to play the wide-spread MP3-format.
But the CDTV is capable of more than just playing back AudioCDs and MP3
tracks, with corresponding hardware better graphics, MPEG-decoding for
(S)VCD movies, more memory and an ethernetport could be possible, and
all of this could be realised on a circuit board for the CDTVs expansion
slot. One should not forget what application area Commodore intended the
CDTV to be used for: entertainment, presentation, encyclopedia and
Unfortunately, no new hardware expansion has been developed for the CDTV
in quite a while. On the one hand, a lot of hardware companies turned
away from the Amiga computer and on the other hand, it's hard to
estimate how many people still actively use their CDTV. For this very
reason, the CD32-Allianz decided to introduce a "CDTV registration" on
our homepage to perhaps one day realise something in terms of hardware
expansions. It's worth a try by all means!
Thus the favour I want to ask you, please support us, because we will
only be able to move something and be strong as a "union"!
You can reach the CDTV registration via the following link:
On a side note we'd like to mention that our homepage can now be viewed
at a screen resolution of 800x600 as well.
We will add a lot of updates in the near future, that's why we'd like to
invite you to visit us from time to time. :)

|Great idea! Hell, if the C=64 crowd can get an ethernet module, why|
can't we? ;-)
All we need now is a DVD recorder that takes caddies and fits in the
CDTV, and a PowerPC accelerator :-D WIth laptop size DDR RAM on
board.. Schwiiing! Hey, might as well dream big..
Also, an english language version might be helpful for those of us who
can't read German..
