Philips Home interactive System

Anything relating to CD-i can be discussed in this forum. From the multiple hardware iterations of the system to the sofware including games, reference, music and Video CDs. Maybe you hold an interest in Philips Media and the many development houses set up to cater for CD-i if so then this is the forum.

Philips Home interactive System

Post by Bas » Sat Aug 20, 2005 5:47 pm

From Erronous.

"Philips Home interactive System, which provides a range of connections with information and entertainment systems (television, radio, video, cable, satellite, telefax, CD & videodisc, among others) with a computer system. "

The picture shows 5 stacked components in the style of the CD-i 180 player, from top to bottom they are marked as:

-CD-i, with cd-drive
-Master(?) with two db9 joystick(?) ports and a keyboard port
-Printer with builtin printer

Next to this are a wireless (?) keyboard, mouse and graphics tablet. The keyboard looks like an MSX-keyboard (which also would explain the db9 joystick ports on the system).

Has anyone ever seen this thing? Is it a (partial) mock-up or did it really work? Any other information? Has anybody recently been to the "Huis van de toekomst" in Rosmalen? IIRC. there was a lot of Philips stuff displayed, but it has been years since I've been there."
