PixelFX have long since made a name for themselves with their ingenious HDMI conversion kits for consoles.

Finally you could connect your consoles to modern TVs without any problems, without adapters, with the best picture quality, optional filters and without delay.

The new Retro G.E.M. is a sensible further development of these console kits:

Instead of developing a separate kit for each console, the Retro G.E.M. now provides a single standard kit, which is adapted to the various consoles using additional adapter boards. Not all console versions are supported. You can check whether your console is supported on this page: https://docs.pixelfx.co/GEM-Support.html

This means:

* Lower costs (as a complete new kit does not have to be developed each time)
* Uniform operation and functions for all supported consoles
* The adapters can be purchased separately and used to convert the basic kit from one console to a completely different one

There are currently adapters for the Retro G.E.M. for N64, PS1, PS2 Fat and PS2 Slim.

To make the kit even more affordable, there are two software versions: The Basic version (which is sufficient for many) and a Shiny version, which offers some extended functions and displays the image even more beautifully.

The great thing about this is that, as it is a software update, the basic version can be upgraded at any time - without having to reopen the console.
This means that anyone can test out whether the basic version is sufficient - and then upgrade to the Shiny version at any time (even months later without any problems).
You can do this directly via the manufacturer here:https://www.pixelfx.co/retro-gem-shiny-upgrade
