Univox
41N

The Univox 41N is a classic pong system sold in France. It can also be found worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. Game Model 2000 for example, or the Intel TV Sport 1004 in Germany (1977). It seems to have been quite popular as many for them were found in french flea markets and boot sales.

The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identical to this one can be found worldwide, the earliest one being a japanese Gamatic 7600 system released in 1976.

The case design is not particularly original: black rectangle with two detachable controllers and a wide control panel at the top. The controllers are also rectangular with a dial to move the bat on screen and a red button each, one to serve (left player) and the other to reset the game (right player).

As almost all systems powered by the TMS-1965 chipset from Texas Instruments, the Univox 41N offers 4 pong games : Hockey, Pelote, Tennis and Entrainement delivered by this specialised chip (the TMS-1965 was pin-to-pin compatible with the more popular AY-3-8500 chip from General Instruments)

On the control panel can be found the usual setting switches: ball speed (slow/fast), automatic service (on/off), game selection, rebound angle (20°/40°), paddle size (small/big) and power switch. The system can be powered by six CM2 battery cells or through an external power supply (9v DC, 360 mW).


 

Also this systems variant is produced in Germany Munich in year 1977 under the name of Intel TV Sport 1004. Probably this 1st generation consoles are by far the best ones in terms of build quality.
