The evolution of the popular RetroTINK 2X device, RetroTINK 2X Pro brings improvements and new features while still keeping an affordable price point. Housed in a professional injection moulded case and with a full size HDMI output port, RetroTINK 2X takes the popular line doubler to a whole new level.
Convert composite, S-Video, component video and analogue audio to HDMI easily and without any input lag. 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 Pro works on individual scanlines rather than a frame at a time, that 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 Pro 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. You can even apply a smoothing filter to smooth out those jaggy edges, if you like.
Supports composite and S-Video – Unlike OSSC, RetroTINK 2X supports composite and S-Video as well as component video (RGB video is not supported on the RetroTINK 2X Pro). This allows a much wider range of legacy computer and games console equipment to be used with the unit.
Add scanlines – Our customers asked for it, and Mike Chi delivered! Now you can add cool looking scanlines to your line doubled image. This is a new feature for the RetroTINK 2X Pro.
Adjustable comb filter – Choose the best comb filtering mode for your source, you can choose between Retro (notch) and Video (2-D comb).
USB Powered – Power RetroTINK 2X from a USB port (1 amp of current is required) or use one of our multi-region power supply units. RetroTINK 2X Pro is compatible with the same PSU as RetroTINK 2X.
