« A quick look at the HDMI digital AV interface mod for CPS2 arcade boards »

If you are looking to play Super Street Fighter II Turbo on real arcade hardware and have it on HD displays instead of a CRT, then you might want to look into this new technology.

Finnish developer Markus "marqs" Hiienkari is currently working on a board that's designed to provide digital audio and video output from Capcom's popular CPS2 arcade board through HDMI. Aside from inherent lag in a monitor, this interface only introduces microseconds of latency.

Currently it's in prototype phase so availability might be some time from now. Marqs intends to have this interface support 480p, 720p, 1080p and 1200p resolutions with audio upsampled to 48khz when finalized. Extra features such as scanline support and an on-screen display are being considered.

You can watch the prototype wired to the CPS2 as well as in action by UD-CPS2 and USB Decoder developer undamned after the jump! For those wanting to play fighting games on older consoles with very low latency in HD monitors, you might want to check marqs' popular Open Source Scan Converter.
