RetroTink 2X Pro - Component, S-video, Composite, to Digital Video Output

The RetroTINK-2X Pro is an affordable video processor to add high-quality analog video inputs to modern HDMI displays by converting 240p/480i/288p/576i NTSC/PAL sources to 480p/576p.

 
It is specifically optimized to accurately handle 240p/288p inputs by offering ultra-low latency line doubling for bypassing a display’s built-in SDTV scaler/deinterlacer which often adds significant lag and visual artifacts.
 

The 2X-Pro takes everything from the original device and improves upon it. The Pro model comes with an injection molded enclosure, a full-size HDMI port, and better build quality. Under the hood, a high quality 4-layer PCB is used, as well as multiple independently regulated and filtered power supplies.

The 2X-Pro adds scanline generation, in addition to the smoothing, as optional filter modes. Different color-encoding formats (PAL-60, NTSC-443, SECAM) are now automatically detected. New firmware can be flashed via the USB port using a PC-based program without the need for special tools.

All this adds up to make the RetroTink Pro the simplest, plug-and-play solution for connecting retro-consoles to modern TVs.

 

Everything that was great about the original is back plus new improvements and features:

  • Professional injection molded enclosure
  • Inputs: Component, S-video, Composite (shared with the green jack)
  • Output: HDMI
  • Automatic format detection: NTSC, PAL, PAL-60, PAL-M*, NTSC-443* and SECAM*
  • SCANLINE mode
  • Adjustable comb filtering for Retro (notch) and Video (2-D comb)
  • USB firmware upgrade capability - no special tools needed

 

*PAL-M, NTSC-443 and SECAM auto-detection and support have been implemented in the firmware but only limited testing has been done due to the inavalibility of these devices in the US.

Powered by optional Micro USB cable (suggested to use a USB port on your TV if available)

Optional 20 watt USB Power Brick includes dual ports (USB and USB-C) and can be used on multiple devices at once.

    Great entry point to retro scaling/conversion solutions

    Posted by Elliott H on Jan 30th 2023

    Simple, effective, and to the point. This device is a great solution for anyone wanting an easy-to-use scaling/conversion solution for their retro setup but also not wanting to break the bank (or isn`t yet willing to deep-dive into more expensive solutions). The smoothing filter really goes a long way to cleaning up the noise in 480I PS2 games, and the scanline filter gives a fun nostalgic look to 240P games. The lack of 480P passthrough is disappointing but understandable at the price point.

    a must have!

    I highly recommend this product if you’re looking for a rescaler. I have a 65” 4K TV and the Retrotink does wonders. My friend was even blown away with how great the picture quality was. I love the fact that there are setting options to adjust to your liking. The price point is fair and doesn’t break the bank. So yeah, get yourself a Retrotink. It’s worth it!

    Excellent budget scaling option

    Posted by Owen on Jan 12th 2023

    If you’re interested in hooking up your old systems to a modern display but don’t want to break the bank, this is what you want. 240p line-doubling, a basic scanline generator, s-video + composite support, deinterlacing, and an optional smoothing filter. Excellent performance + feature set from a retro console scaler at this price point.

    Amazing power in a little box

    Posted by Marbles on Nov 21st 2022

    Easily the best and most reliable video upscaler on the market, easy to use and upgrade.
    The only minor issue is it has some compatibility issues with Elgato recording/streaming hardware, but can easily be worked around.

    A lifesaver (for retro consoles)

    Posted by George Chyoghly on Jul 25th 2022

    This helps so much in getting crisp images out of retro consoles like the n64 and snes, especially with the svideo port which isnt even avaliable on any tvs newer than like 2007

    Retrotink 2XPro

    Posted by Grgak on Jul 16th 2022

    as a standalone device for your hd tvs this is a great item. I noticed a few issues with capturing it through an Elgato like dropped signals especially with PAL systems, but it definitly gets the job done once you mess around with it. I've tried other solutions for capturing gameplay and this one is easily one of the best.
