SNES & Sega Genesis Component Cables: SD Remaster

by Lambert Varias

You can easily play digital copies of your SNES and Sega Genesis games on your computer, but if you prefer to play on the actual consoles you might want to keep an eye on HD Retrovision’s upcoming products. The company has designed replacement YPbPr component cables for the classic consoles that should result in clearer and sharper images, with less jitter.

According to HD Retrovision, the image you see above compares the video output between the standard composite cable that came with the SNES (left) and its YPbPr component cable. HD Retrovision says that the conversion from the original RGB output to the YPbPr signal is done from within the cables themselves, so they are plug and play.

HD Retrovision says the cables should work with most HD and SD TV sets. Its Sega Genesis cable will come in mono and stereo variants, while the SNES cable will have only one variant and will work only with the original SNES (model no. SNS-001).  The company is also working to make both the SNES and Sega Genesis cables work for both PAL and NTSC TVs, but if that falls through it will just release separate cables for either region.

If you want more proof, here’s a lengthy side-by-side compilation of SNES games:

Here’s one for the Genesis:

Pledge at least $35 (USD) on Kickstarter to get HD Retrovision’s YPbPr component cable for the SNES or Sega Genesis. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to re-watch those videos and reminisce about the good old times.
