RetroTINK 2X SCART, the perfect no hassle plug and play solution for European gamers, is here!
No messing with complex settings, no dozens of dip switches to configure, just connect your RGB SCART* cable to the RetroTINK 2X SCART, connect a suitable power source and then plug an HDMI cable from the 2X SCART to your TV.
What does it do?
Processes (line doubles) retro games with NO input lag – Unlike other scalers, such as the XRGB Mini, the RetroTINK 2X SCART 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 SCART converts 240p or 288p input from retro consoles into a 480p/576p image that is correctly displayed and processed. EVERY special effect, from 240p drop shadows to striped sprites, is rendered correctly.
Note that unlike its siblings, the RetroTINK 2X Classic and the RetroTINK 2X Pro, the RetroTINK 2X SCART is permanently set to line double mode and cannot pass-through the signal unaltered.
Optional scanline filter – Retro console graphics were designed to be shown on CRT televisions. When these old screens displayed the graphics, they left every other line blank, a phenomenon that is usually called “scanlines”. Many people feel the graphics do not look correct without these lines, so the RetroTINK 2X SCART gives you the option to add them back into the image.
USB Powered – Power RetroTINK 2X SCART from a USB port (1 amp of current is required) or use one of our multi-region power supply units. RetroTINK 2X SCART is compatible with the same PSU as RetroTINK 2X/2X Pro.
