ICL Plc announced the PCTV - a fully configured multimedia personal computer and television set with 14 screen and Nicam stereo combined in a single unit, and the Indiana multimedia home computer range, each in a charcoal coloured casing. Both ranges carry the new Fujitsu ICL badge. The television device is 80486DX/66-based.

Chairman Peter Bonfield said ICL is not planning to rebadge its mainframe products, nor will it drop the ICL from the Fujitsu ICL badge.
