The GBS Control is an open source upscaler that was created to be a low cost, high quality addition to the retro gaming world. Each unit comes fully assembled with a case.
Our GBS control comes with a euro scart input, a vga to hdmi adapter for output and has a switch for toggling a 100ohm resistor to ground on the sync line. This can help with RGB sync on some consoles
Taken from the GBS Control wiki -
Gbscontrol is an alternative firmware for Tvia Trueview5725 based upscalers / video converter boards.
Its growing list of features includes:
- very low lag
- sharp and defined upscaling, comparing well to other -expensive- units
- no synchronization loss switching 240p/480i (output runs independent from input, sync to display never drops)
- on demand motion adaptive deinterlacer that engages automatically and only when needed
- works with almost anything: 8 bit consoles, 16/32 bit consoles, 2000s consoles, home computers, etc
- little compromise, eventhough the hardware is very affordable (less than $30 typically)
- lots of useful features and image enhancements
- optional control interface via web browser, utilizing the ESP8266 WiFi capabilities
- good color reproduction with auto gain and auto offset for the tripple 8 bit @ 160MHz ADC
- optional bypass capability to, for example, transcode Component to RGB/HV in high quality
Supported standards are NTSC / PAL, the EDTV and HD formats, as well as VGA from 192p to 1600x1200 (earliest DOS, home computers, PC). Sources can be connected via RGB/HV (VGA), RGBS (game consoles, SCART) or Component Video (YUV). Various variations are supported, such as the PlayStation 2's VGA modes that run over Component cables.
Gbscontrol is a continuation of previous work by dooklink, mybook4, Ian Stedman and others.
