Pizon Bros
Visiomatic 101

One really nice and odd pong system. It also was sometimes distributed under the Alcatel label. It was sold in a brown suitcase so you could carry it easily and anywhere. In the upper part of the suitcase is stored the lightgun.

The buttons are very original and very cool to press (hehe, you can't imagine the feeling...). You can use the magnets sold with the system to keep the score by placing them on the sides of the metallic panel where numbered squares are drawned.

It is quite difficult to know which chip this system uses because it is very hard to open ! But there are two special options built-in the system which are quite uncommon :

- A new game called Hockey Handicap. It's a classic hockey game where there's a third bat for one of the players.

- Is also included in the system a robot option that allows a single player to play vs the system in 4 games (Tennis, Hockey, Handicap Hockey and Squash)

A definitely nice looking pong with original graphic designs !

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners.


I was an Alcatel technician in charge of this design in 1973!!!!The product was designed by Alcatel and sold by Pizon Bros. We produced approximately 10000 of this type. You can remark that it is possible to play alone against a "robot" (this is a plus i added).

The chipset is an hybrid circuit designed for that product. I still own one. After this i designed another type with colors (green for the tennis and red for soccer). This application was developped to start a new hybrid circuit prduction line in alcatel factory in Arcueil. This game is working on old TV set through the antenna UHF.

I got this one from a cousin, I never was able to play with it (old antenna system), I checked ebay and found out it had no value (25$) so I gave it.
