Want to play your Nintendo 64 with bit-perfect video and audio, on your modern flatscreen? This is for you!
The kit 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!
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, 576p50
- 720p60, 50
- 1080p60, 50
- Audio: 48KHz, 16bit digital 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 1 frame (16ms).

UltraHDMI 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.
Installation not included, but here is a list of kit installers I trust to do a great job for you!
It’s a difficult install, watch this video and judge for yourself:
If you do want to try the install on your own here is the ultrahdmi n64 installation guide.
Each kit is fully tested, so we can guarantee it worked fine when shipped.
Unfortunately we are only hobbyist, not wal-mart, so we cannot warranty the kit unless it has been installed by one of the approved installers listed above.
We can’t control things like ESD and bad soldering skills.
We can do repair work, just not for free.
