Asking this question is like asking "What brand of Betamax you own?" or "what brand of VCS 2600 you won?" You know Pioneer was going to be number 1. I'm surprised 17% of primary LDs are NON-Pioneer. But then again, It's higher than Betamax, where the only 2 other companies making Beta were Sanyo and Sears. Probably 90-95 percent of active Betas are Sony.

I don't know whether there is a bigger percentage of non-Pioneer LDs or a bigger percentage of non-Atari 2600s. The funny thing is Philips (before Pioneer bought the rights to be the adoptive mother of the system, and later Pioneer) licensed all LD players, whereas Colecovision Expansion 1, Coleco Gemini, Columbia House game player, and others were unauthorized knockoffs of the 2600. And they were legal because they used all off-the-shelf, (possibly) public domain parts.

Did anyone make a Selectavision machine other than RCA?

Also, besides the Sears Beta for movie players, and the Sears Telegames (2600) and Super Telegames (INTV), TandyVision (INTV), The GTE/Sylvania (INTV) game system, and the Montgomery Ward (Bally) game system, were there other "Store Brand" media players. I gave a lot of examples of interactive media. Are the any store brands of "linear media" players other than the Sears Beta, in any format? Any "Store Brand" Laser Disc, VHS, Selectavision.

I think Montgomery Ward was big on Laser Disc and might have had a store brand, as their promotional media were printed on Laser Disc.

Just retired my Pioneer 704 after six years of faithful service. Replaced it with a Denon LA-3500. Been trying to get my hands on one of these for the last two years.
