The RetroTINK 2X-Mini is the entry level RetroTINK device and replaces the RetroTINK 2X classic. The device supports composite video and S-Video signals only, component video is NOT supported on this model.
RetroTINK 2X-Mini is an affordable composite and S-Video and analogue audio to digital video transcoder/converter designed by Mike Chi. Finally, you can connect your composite or S-Video only systems to your HDTV and enjoy the best possible picture quality from those legacy connections. No more bad deinterlacing, no more 240p incompatibilities.
What does it do?
Processes (line doubles) retro games with NO input lag – Unlike other scalers, such as the XRGB Mini, the RetroTINK 2X-Mini works on individual scanlines rather than a frame at a time, which means there’s no input lag whatsoever (well, a few nanoseconds if you really want to be precise).
Eliminates ugly deinterlacing artefacts and bad scaling – Connect most retro consoles to your TV and if you get a picture at all, it’s likely to be ugly. Bad scaling combined with deinterlacing (which should never even be applied to 240p material) will ruin the picture and make you wish you had your old CRT back. Well, worry no more! RetroTINK 2X-Mini converts the image into a 480p image that is correctly displayed and processed. EVERY special effect, from 240p drop shadows to striped sprites, is rendered correctly.
Supports composite and S-Video – Unlike OSSC, RetroTINK 2X-Mini supports composite and S-Video (RGB video and component video are NOT supported on the RetroTINK 2X-Mini). This allows a much wider range of legacy computer and games console equipment to be used with the unit.
