The Jet 471 is Radiola’s successor to the Jet 47. It has the same specifications as the Philips Videopac G7401 and also uses the same Péritel/DIN plug for video output instead of the Jet 47’s normal TV antenna plug. The Péritel is a standard French 40-pin connector, equivalent to SCART, which allows video input devices to be directly recognized by televisions without setting up a channel. This makes it easier to use outside of PAL regions, in countries such as the U.S. Furthermore, the connection gives the Jet 471 the possibility to output an RGB-signal, which greatly improves the image quality. The Jet 471 is the last Videopac console sold by Radiola.
It is not clear how many units of the Jet 471 were produced. However, the console is very rare. It is much harder to find than the Jet 47. The only Jet 471’s and G7401’s I could find came from French. Probably because the Péritel connection was invented and introduced there in 1978. A few years before other European countries widely adopted the standard.
