CDTV CDA-1

Developer: Commodore
Year of demonstration: May 1990

CDA-1 and CDTV- Click to enlarge
The CDA-1 was a pre-production version of the CDTV 'Baby' demonstrated to various magazines during May 1990. The basic specifications were still sketchy at this point so it is uncertain if these are the same as the final release. The case layout differs slightly from the final machine. The most obvious difference is that the name badge is different to indicate its prototype status, but there is also some writing underneath the Commodore logo. Rather than the familiar CDTV logo, the badge reads 'Interactive Graphics Player'. The volume controls also move from underneath the CD drive in the pre-production version to the right of the machine in the final release. Two months later a second version of the CDTV was demonstrated to the press. I have dubbed it the CDA-2.
