Casio
PV-1000

Nearly nothing is known about this obscure system. Help welcomed.

Apparently Casio released the PV-1000 and a PV-2000 computer in 1983. But both systems are not compatible with each others... Though one may think they are based on the same hardware, they have in fact completely different architecture.

The PV-1000 is powered by a Z80A micro-processor. There is only 2 KB RAM available, plus 1 KB devoted to the character generator. The resolution if 256 x 192 pixels with 8 colours.

Around 15 cartidges were released for the PV-1000, including famous arcade hits like Pooyan, Amidar, Tutankhamon, and Dig-Dug.

Casio also released (the same year) two other systems, PV-7 and PV-16 which were MSX computers. It could be interesting to find the links between these four PV-xxx systems. Were the PV-1000 / 2000 released before or after the MSX adventure tempted by Casio ? etc...

Alex M. reports :
MY knowledge regarding this system is by no means complete, but it IS related to the MSX. In fact the internals are quite similar to the colecovision, which of course is quite similar to MSX computers. However it has been tweaked around a bit, so it (theortecially) performs better.


We need more info about this console ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
