The TLV-K981G is a VCD Player containing licensed Sega Mega Drive hardware that was distributed in China by Tianli. Games were distributed on Compact Discs known as "GAME VCDs", with each CD containing numerous games. Loading is not as instantaneous as cartridge, with the selected game presumably having to be loaded into internal memory before it can be played. The included Mega Drive hardware is largely independant of the VCD hardware, with the ability to output both simultaneously with two televisions connected. This would seem to be the first of many hybrid VCD/Mega Drive models by Tianli.
