1984.

Spectravision began its career with the manufacture of miscellaneous supplies to different game consoles, inter alia cartridges. Relatively quickly, however, they were renamed because the name was already busy. It had to be Spectravideo.

The move from games consoles to computers is not very far, and Spectravideo manufactured for instance an additive that made Atari 2600 game console to a computer. Then there were a number of computers on the market, of which one is SVI 728. Now again they are a manufacturer of accessories.

SVI 728 was Spectravideos first substantive MSX computer. The predecessors SV 318 and SVI 328 was not compatible. They just looked like MSX. SVI 728 was, as well as SVI 328 a true keyboard with numeric keys. There were a number of accessories, which, however, were not compatible with its predecessors; SV 318 and SVI 328.
