3001 - Home Video Centre

The Intervision 3001 is one of the many systems "software-compatible" with the Emerson Arcadia 2001. Visually, it is the same system as the Intervision 2001.

On the electronic board of the Intervision 3001 can be found this inscription : "M1800 11-0253-10 Rev A". Several systems of the "Arcadia family" are based on this generic M1800 electronic board. This shows that the hardware was conceived by one company (in Hong Kong ? Soundic ? Radofin ?) and then sent to others companies for assembly and specific marketing (see Voltmace Database story for another example of the phenomenon). But the name of original company is not known until now, and no generic M1800 system has been found so far. Some game boxes labeled with "can be used with M1800 system" exist, but there was always a sticker upon it replacing M1800 with the name of another system. Thus even with the games, it looks like the parent company sent ready to be marketed games & boxes where each company had to put their own sticker upon them.

Soundic seems to be such a company which built MPT-x systems and then sold them to other companies to do their own marketing. Many obscure consoles are in fact based on MPT-x electronic board. MPT-02 were RCA Studio II clones, MPT-03 were "Arcadia 2001 clones" and MPT-04 & MPT-05 were "Interton VC-4000 clones".

The Intervision 3001 is a rare machine! One was found in spain and another in Switzerland where the 2001 model was distributed too. The Intervision 2001 was also sold in Finland so it wouldn't be a surprise to discover a 3001 model there too one day.

See the Intervision 2001 entry for more info about the system itself...

Hi Folks,
Is the 3001 so rare ? I’ve got one since a few days (it a has been saved from the garbage). I''ve begun by cleaning it (stored in a cellar ?).
It’s a nice console. It''s very hard to get informations on it on internet
