The CDTV was Commodore's attempt to build a multimedia entertainment station. It was designed to run interactive entertainment software or be used to manage multimedia displays, such as point of information terminals. The CDTV was also supplied with a wireless infrared controller. The CDTV is fully Amiga compatible and is capable of running the same software as conventional Amigas. Some versions of CDTV motherboard may have been upgraded by Commodore, so you may find a different revision mentioned underneath the sticker.
