HDMI & RGB retro cables for modern televisions

Posted by Av Kandola on

Over the past few years we have seen the resolution in televisions move from 1080p to 4k. This has benefited modern games in a huge way but has done the opposite for retro games, making them look blury and dull.

This has resulted in many retro gamers moving from original hardware and onto newer retro remakes such as the Super Retro Trio, SNES Classic etc. These remade consoles are great for casual gamers but they do not satisfy hardcore enthusiasts due to input lag, sound and other issues.

With this in mind companies like Pound Technology & Insurrection Industries have started to produce high quality HDMI & RGB cables which make original hardware look sharp, vivid and great on modern HDTVs and classic CRT's*.

Below is a list of cables available from both Pound Technology & Insurrection Industries:

Pound Tech's inaugural products, the HD LINK cables for the Dreamcast, Playstation 2 & original XBox will allow you to enjoy your original consoles on modern televisions with HDMI inputs!

With the HD Link cable for Dreamcast you can finally take things a little further and enjoy maximum video quality and convenient setup with your modern HD television.

We use the Dreamcast's native VGA signal and convert it to digital HDMI. Because of that, some games that are not VGA compatible will not work.
