It’s finally here! The ultimate lag-free retro gaming linedoubler and processor hits the market. Now there’s an affordable way to use your retro consoles on your PC monitor or TV in perfect quality. No more bad upscaling, no more interlacing artefacts, no more high input lag, the OSSC is a dream for retro gamers and collectors!
What does it do?
Processes (line doubles) retro games with NO input lag – Unlike other scalers, such as the XRGB Mini, the OSSC 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! OSSC converts the image into a 480p or 720p (where compatible) image that is correctly displayed and processed. EVERY special effect, from 240p drop shadows to striped sprites, is rendered correctly.
Converts SCART and Component to DVI/HDMI – Feed in a 480p component video signal from a Wii and get out a perfectly processed 480p HDMI or DVI (with a simple adapter) image. The quality is flawless!
Convert VGA to DVI/HDMI – Connect a Dreamcast directly to the unit and enjoy HDMI processing of all your games, not just those that support 480p.
Convert analogue audio to digital DVI/HDMI *NEW* – Analogue audio from your retro games console will be converted to digital audio and injected into the HDMI/DVI output (requires compatible TV, processor or AV receiver. Analogue audio output is still available for setups where this is required).
Fast deinterlacer – Fed up with high input lag on interlace games? The OSSCs deinterlacer is lag free! Note that this does however mean there’s a drop in picture quality for interlace sources, but this is unavoidable. A pass through mode, where interlace signals are sent directly to the TV for processing instead, is also included.
