As the retro gaming community eagerly awaits the TINK-4K’s debut, this forthcoming addition to the RetroTINK family is poised to revolutionize the gaming experience. With its extensive array of features and enhancements. The RetroTINK 4K has been produced to offer a wide range of retro video sources. The flexibility of the RetroTINK 4K ‘s inputs allows both HD-15 and SCART to accommodate nearly any analog format, making it a versatile addition to your gaming setup. It seamlessly connects unique console sources like PCs and arcade boards, offering pre-configured settings for standard consumer video and retro PCs. The HDMI inputs are designed to handle a wide range of custom resolutions and frame rates within the receiver’s maximum bandwidth. The primary output of the RetroTINK 4K is 4K60 (3840 x 2160, 60 Hz), with built-in modes including 1080p, 1440p, and 480p. For those seeking custom resolutions, you can easily achieve this by adding a modeline text file to the SD card. Advanced users will appreciate the support for high frame rate outputs by the RetroTINK 4K ‘s HDMI 2.0 transmitter. The RetroTINK 4K ‘s scaling engine provides users with the freedom to scale/crop their source to precise specifications. You have control over aspect ratio correction, filtering modes, and can even define exact pixel numbers in a free-scaling mode. The RT4K ensures that even non-integer scales maintain a sharp appearance, thanks to its bilinear sharp filtering. Additionally, the RT4K can perform automatic PAR (Pixel Aspect Ratio) transformations, ensuring perfect 4:3 aspect ratios. For those who appreciate the nostalgic CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) look, the RetroTINK 4K offers advanced CRT simulation options. You can customize scanlines, phosphor masks, and beam mis-convergence to recreate that classic CRT gaming experience. And for HDR OLED users, the RetroTINK 4K can output true, Rec. 709 to Rec. 2020 color-corrected HDR output. The RetroTINK 4K will play well with popular platforms like MiSTer and Analogue. RetroTINK 4K is currently targeted for a late-2023 release.
