With a video mod-kit for your vintage console!
RetroVideoAV&trade: The first entry to the RetroVideo&trade product-line by Flashback Vintage Electronics, converts internal video signals inside your classic video game system to composite A/V (audio and video) signals that you can plug directly into your TV, monitor, or entertainment system A/V RCA jacks! Virtually every TV, VCR, DVD Player and many monitors made from the mid-1980s to the present-day have these inputs, but many newer displays lack the older 75-Ohm and 300-Ohm inputs that these old consoles would normally require. Now with the RetroVideoAV&trade, you can enjoy the full experience of using your classic system on whatever A/V-equipped TV or monitor you desire, hassle-free!
You can order the RetroVideoAV pre-assembled, as a kit, or as a bare board: The pre-assembled package is ready to go, right out of the box and requires you or your friends to solder a mere four wires to your machine. It is designed with the A/V cables built-in, so you need only route them to the outside of your gaming system, solder the RetroVideo's internal connections, and then close up the case. There is no other product available in the Americas or Europe that is this simple to use and install!
The RetroVideoAV&trade was designed and manufactured for owners and users of the Nintendo Famicom (the Japanese equivalent to the NES), and comes in a groovy red & white colour scheme to match the exterior of that classic console! Nevertheless, it does also work on other systems, and we support it on additional platforms!
The RetroVideoAV&trade also includes a 5-year warranty and is made of only the highest quality parts, assembled in the USA. It comes with a printed manual detailing how to use and install it on every tested system, with full instructions on and illustrations of every step of detail.
The supported systems at this time are the:
Nintendo Famicom (All Models)
Nintendo NES-101 (Top-Loader)
...more to follow.
Note that support is automatically grandfathered: If we add support for a system after you purchase your RetroVideo&trade, the newly added system will be guaranteed on your board even if we add it long after your purchase-date."
You can download the Latest RetroVideoAV&trade Manuals and Documentation Here.
You may also purchase the RetroVideoAV&trade as a kit, completely not-assembled, but with all the needed parts, or as a bare PCB, for which you will need to supply the parts. (Do to the 'do-it-yourself' nature of these products, and the possibility of damaging the parts during assembly, neither the bare board nor the pars kit include a warranty; Only the fully-assembled kits are guaranteed.)
When ordering your RetroVideoAV&trade, we give you a selection of options from which you may choose the ideal solution t fit your needs. We also offer you the ability to customize your RetroVideo even further: If you want 20' cables, we will happily custom-make one for you, for a small extra fee to cover the materials.
You may select any of the following cable lengths when ordering normally:
3' Male RCA leads, for shorter hookups.
6' male RCA leads for longer range.
3' Female RCA leads, so that you can use any length of RCS hookup cable that you desire.
Any of the above, with dual-mono sound out, for hooking up to systems with stereo speakers without the need for a splitter.
