The Computer Interface PAC, sometimes stylized as Computer Interface Pack, is a Pioneer LaserActive hardware expansion module which allows the system to be controlled by an NEC PC-98, IBM PC DOS, or Apple Macintosh personal computer[1], by way of a custom program authored to communicate via the PAC's 25-pin serial port. The PAC is the only Japan-exclusive Pioneer LaserActive peripheral.

The PAC shipped with floppy discs containing the LaserActive Program Editor, including sample programs for use with the first five Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki LaserDisc releases. The PAC additionally shipped with the Computer Interface Pack Remote Control Unit, providing more functionality than the standard Remote Control Unit that was included with the system.
