The pictures below show the Thor AV Control Centre AVC-100 SCART switch in action. The shots are of the 240p test suite running on a NTSC/Japanese Sega Megadrive with the Pack-a-Punched raw sync SCART cable. They were taken using the Startech PEXHDCAP capture card and uploaded manually to the website to avoid any picture processing WordPress might do. By default the pictures show the Mega Drive connected directly to the capture card, mouse over to see the difference the SCART switch makes.

The Thor switch actually seems to make the picture a tiny bit brighter, suggesting that it is actually boosting the signal internally.
