WHAT IS IT?

Want to play your Nintendo 64 with bit-perfect video and audio, on your modern flatscreen? This is for you!

The mod goes inside your N64 and connects directly to the RCP, capturing video as digital RGB, optionally adding processing like scanlines and crop/fill, producing up to 1080p HDMI output.

The quality blows away the older composite and RF connections. It really makes a huge difference on LCD TVs!

THE FEATURES

UltraHDMI is designed to connect to modern TVs and monitors. It generates several different resolutions, and like all the other options, can be configured with the on-screen menu.

  • 480p60, 480i60
  • 576p50, 576i50
  • 720p60, 50
  • 1080p60, 50
  • Audio: 48KHz, 16bit PCM

All the settings are configurable with an on-screen menu overlay that can be accessed during a game with a button combo.

Every aspect of operation is fully configurable. Just want to play games? It works fine from the get go. Power users can tweak every setting to their liking.

Optionally, it can apply a set of retro filters to make it "feel" more like a tube TV: scanline bleed, nonlinear brightness curve, HV anode sag...

You can turn off all the processing for a zero-delay signal with less than 100 nanoseconds of lag. Otherwise, latency averages 16ms.

HOW CAN I BUY IT?

I won't sell the mod myself. Installing the mod is pretty tricky and requires decent soldering skill.

Instead, you'll buy them from installers/resellers. There are already people all over the world who are setting up to do installs.

Final pricing is also up to them.

Installation is a bit fiddly
FINAL DETAILS

This mod cannot add more detail or resolution than the N64 already generates. It can't fix blurry textures, or add polygon detail.

What you will get is a pixel perfect image of what the game produces, before it got smeared into analog TV goo.

Use both plugs at once
