From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The TV Computer (TVC) was a home computer made by the Hungarian company Videoton around 1986. The computer was based on the ZiLOG Z80 microprocessor and had a built-in BASIC interpreter. Programs could be loaded via tape or floppy. It had a built-in joystick, and a keyboard with Hungarian letters and nine function keys.

There were three different models:

  • TVC 32k had 32K of memory.
  • TVC 64k had 64K of memory.
  • TVC 64k+ also had 64K of memory, but had a newer BASIC interpreter (v2.2) and more video RAM (64K instead of 16K).

The TVC had three graphical modes: 128x240/16 colors, 256x240/4 colors, and 512x240/2 colors (black and white).

Few programs existed for the TVC. Many of these were written by dedicated amateurs and distributed by mail.
